Grape Jelly Salad

I've been using nearly empty jam jars to make vinaigrettes for a while now. I don't usually buy grape jelly but finished a jar of it recently and darned if it didn't make a heck of a salad dressing. Used EVOO, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, minced shallot and crushed garlic. Over a salad with romaine, kalamata olives, seedless black grapes, roasted beets and crumbled blue cheese. Dog gone good for a red-necked bachelor.

Thanks,
I forgot to mention halved grape tomatoes in equal amount with the halved seedless grapes. The acidic tomato helps balance the sweet grapes.
