    I used to serve this often years ago (and I think I will begin to do so again!) - and as Sarah said - it is always fun to see someone's reaction when it is put before them - I have yet to find someone who doesn't love it. I like to use green grapes - it's a pretty, easy, springtime or summertime dessert after a filling meal.

    My friends and I have had this same dessert, but used strawberries instead of grapes. It is refreshing and sweet. It is our most favorite dessert, and its fun to watch people try it because everyone is so apprehensive before they take there first bite. Next time we will have to try it with grapes.
