Expert Tips

You can substitute 1 cup dried cherries or cranberries for the grapes. Because the dried fruit is smaller and will distribute nicely throughout the salad, just 1 cup is enough to substitute for the 2 cups of grapes.

To toast nuts, spread them in an ungreased shallow pan and bake at 350° for 6 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until light brown. Or sprinkle in an ungreased heavy skillet and cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.
