Here are a few ways to use grapes to make healthy snacks and starters:

PEANUT BUTTER AND GRAPES. Spread a toasted English muffin half with peanut butter and top with slivered seedless grapes. You can also use whole-grain sandwich bread or crackers.

YOGURT WITH ORANGES AND GRAPES. Top plain yogurt with orange segments, sliced seedless grapes and chopped pistachios (or other nuts).

ARUGULA SALAD WITH GRAPES. Toss arugula with crumbled blue cheese, halved seedless grapes and your favorite vinaigrette.

MOZZARELLA AND GRAPE SKEWERS. Thread seedless grapes, bocconcini (mozzarella balls) and sliced prosciutto on wooden skewers.

FROZEN GRAPES. For a quick, refreshing snack, freeze grapes until solid, about three hours.
