Eating a green, leafy salad for lunch can be boring. I wanted to do something different from leafy green salads. I spotted in an old copy of Eating Light Magazine in the waiting room of the doctor’s office, a recipe for a green grape salad.

To me, this healthy grape salad sounded good but could be improved. I ran the recipe by my GBF (Gay Best Friend), he is a culinary wizard. He suggested adding mint this salad with green grapes. To me, this was a wonderful idea.

When I saw that recipe for the green grape salad, and Richard’s suggestion to add mint to the grape recipe, I felt it needed more than just green grapes. I added red grapes and feta to this grape and feta salad.
