Avocado & 12 Grape Salad With Walnuts

  3 rater(s)

Before you even ask, we are going to explain the significance of 12 grapes in this salad. Eating 12 grapes at midnight on New Year’s Eve has become both a tradition and a superstition. The 12 grapes, according to Spaniard superstition, symbolize the upcoming 12 lucky months ahead. Eating the grapes is believed to bring luck for the New Year. You probably shouldn’t eat at midnight, but you can enjoy this for dinner!
