Dress up your holiday table with a savory dressing made with naturally flavorful ingredients.

With fresh plump green and red grapes from Chile glistening like holiday ornaments in a savory blend of colorful rice and crunchy pecans, turkey stuffing or a side dish never looked or tasted this good!

Three cups of fresh grapes give this dressing a pleasant crunch and just enough juicy sweetness to balance a rich wintertime meal. Serve it as a delicate counterpoint to roasted ham, pork tenderloin or turkey.

Fresh grapes offer satisfying flavor and healthy antioxidants for very few calories. And because it is summer in the vineyards of Chile, fresh, juicy grapes grown without pesticides are now abundant in markets across North America.
