Can I store Leftovers?

Yes of course! As long as it is tightly covered you can store in the fridge for 3 days or up to a week. I have noticed that the grapes will start to lose their plumpness but don’t worry all you have to do is add some fresh, toasted walnut, cashews, almonds, pecans, and some salt and pepper.
