Eating Well When You’re Busy is Important

We haven’t really had a chance to get out of the city yet this summer. I know, it’s a really short window of opportunity here in Canada and not being able to go anywhere has definitely been frustrating. Sometimes I feel like this summer is slipping away due to work obligations and keeping up with official health services treatment for our daughter. It means a lot of trips to the Alberta Children’s Hospital and not a lot of fun trips out of the city. Today we dropped off the Pathfinder for some extensive work and it’s generally our ‘play’ vehicle…the one we use to pack up the gang to go for a weekend hike or camping trip. So really…we are stuck here but trying to make the best of things and keep busy/social by inviting friends and family over for backyard barbecues.

Yesterday happened to be our oldest son’s 21 st birthday. It hardly seems fair that our time with him has been so short…21 years has gone by in a flash! He was a great kid, very patient with us young and inexperienced parents. He has turned out to be a hard working, responsible young man. Sometimes maybe I wish he was a bit less hard working as we hardly ever see him and…speaking as someone who became a young mother and skipped ‘the 20’s’ I just don’t want him to miss out on what can sometimes be the most interesting decade of life. He’s always been one of those ‘inside the box’ thinkers.

For his party, I invited his fiancée and her parents over for a backyard barbecue and asked him what I should serve. He chose the chili rubbed ribs I’ve been making for at least ten years and Grandma Kyle’s Frozen Ice Cream Cake for dessert. As the ribs are a family favourite I never, ever alter the recipe but one traditional dish on the menu was enough for me. I was able to tweak the ice cream cake recipe ever so slightly while still honouring his request.   Our meal was a mix of ‘inside the box’ with a little crazy thrown in and this fruit salsa was part of the unexpected, but fun components of our barbecue.  It’s sweet and spicy and perfect dipping for a hot summer’s day at home.

Grape and Blueberry Salsa

A bowl full of salsa made from chopped green and red grapes with blueberries and cilantro.

This Grape and Blueberry Salsa is a sweet and spicy alternative to tomato based salsa. Serve it alongside your favourite grilled meat or with corn tortilla chips.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 5 cups seedless green, red or mixed firm grapes
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 small jalapeño; seeded and very finely diced
  • 1/4 onion; very finely diced
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro; chopped


  1. Combine the onion and red wine vinegar together and let sit.
  2. Cut the grapes into eights. Yes, it's tedious but this is a salsa and it needs to go on a tortilla chip later. There's a lot of fine dicing in this recipe but it's worth it, especially when we're talking jalapeños.
  3. Combine grapes, blueberries, jalapeños, and cilantro with the marinated onions in a serving bowl.
  4. Enjoy!

      Blueberries go well with jalapenos 🙂

  3. janet @ the taste space

    Love the idea of this non-traditional salsa. I don’t normally think of grapes but sounds great here. I didn’t realize this was an older post. I hope your daughter is doing better these days. How are the vegan eats going?
