Oma's Lettuce Salad with Grapes

➤ by Gerhild Fulson

Lettuce salad with grapes, aka Kopfsalat mit Weintrauben, is a delicious change from the traditional tossed salad recipes.

Adding cheese boosts the protein and makes tossed salad recipes even better! Grapes are widely grown in southern Germany, especially for wine. 

For the full list of ingredients & detailed instructions, see the recipe card at the end of this post. But before you scroll, there’s important & interesting stuff to know right below.

Lettuce salad with grapes!

Grapes are readily available in late fall and one is always on the lookout for new grape recipes. This lettuce salad is one of them!

Have extra grapes? Just remove them from the vines, wash and dry them. Then put into a freezer bag and freeze. When you need something sweet, just pop a frozen grape into your mouth. Yum!

Lettuce salad recipes are easy to prepare and add that healthy touch to a lunch or supper meal. This one includes grapes and apples to make it a real healthy treat.

If you'd like a more traditional lettuce salad with a tart, creamy salad dressing with a hint of dill, try Lettuce Salad with Sour Cream Salad Dressing. A treat as well.

Whenever you make a lettuce salad, make sure that you wash the lettuce thoroughly. Then dry it. Use a salad spinner or gently pat the leaves dry with paper towels.

Water that sticks to the leaves will prevent an oil-based dressing from adhering or will turn a cream dressing watery.

Oma says:

Even though this recipe uses head lettuce, I personally use romaine for almost all my salads. Because the romaine leaves are a darker green, they contain more nutrients.

However, in this recipe, the head lettuce does have a more delicate taste.


Hummus?

Yep. Hummus. Sylvie, my daughter-in-law, shares that hummus dressing is delicious in this and explains how to make the changes. Her easy hummus recipe that's the basis for the salad dressing so quick to make and it's becoming wildly popular in Germany. Try it. I think you'll like it too!
