Cut each sheet of phyllo dough into 4 equal parts (about 6-1/2x8-1/2-in.
pieces) and keep under a damp towel to prevent drying. Working with 4
pieces at a time, brush each with oil and stack, alternating directions
with each piece to enable covering entire filling. Portion 1/6 of cheese in
center of dough. Combine basil and pepper; mix well. Top cheese with 1
teaspoon basil mixture and 1/3 cup grapes. Carefully twist pastry to
enclose filling so it resembles a small bundle. Brush lightly with oil to
prevent drying. Place on greased baking sheet. Repeat with remaining
ingredients. Bake at 400F 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Toss mixed
greens with Mustard Vinaigrette. Serve each phyllo packet on a bed of mixed
greens; garnish with grape clusters. Makes 6 servings.
