Ingredients

  • 3 cups seedless red grapes
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (8-oz) block feta cheese
  • Crackers or toasts, for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • In a medium bowl, toss together grapes and walnuts with 2 Tbsp of the olive oil. Spread mixture in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast about 25 minutes, until grapes are blistered and walnuts are toasted. Set baking sheet aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, honey and thyme.
  • Spread flour on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Dip the feta in water, then dredge it in the flour, shaking off any excess.
  • Heat remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add feta and cook, undisturbed, 3 minutes. Flip it once and continue cooking until it’s golden brown and cheese begins to crisp slightly, about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer feta to a serving plate. Top with the roasted grapes and walnuts, then drizzle with lemon dressing. Serve with crackers or toasts.
