Roasted grapes are nothing new. But they are special....and simple. Buy concord or red seedless, rinse, drizzle with olive oil and season with a bit of salt and roast 'em in the oven until they're shriveled up like a child's fingers who refuses to get out of the bath.
The result is grapes that are warm, sweet with a developed flavor you'll long for each winter. I've paired the roasted grapes with cashews, quinoa and fresh thyme. Each ingredient warm and homey. Lay them on a bed of escarole greens and you've found yourself the perfect winter salad.
