2 cups red seedless grapes
1 shallot thinly sliced
1 cup wild rice cooked according to package directions

1 tbsp + 2 tsp olive oil divided
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp fresh sage leaves chopped
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Toss the grapes and shallot with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Transfer to a baking sheet that’s been sprayed with oil or lined with parchment paper and roast for about 20 minutes, or until the grapes are softened, but not burst.

Transfer the grapes and shallot to a large bowl. Add rice, walnuts, remaining oil, vinegar, and sage; gently toss, careful not to smash the grapes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
