Creamy Grape Salad Recipe

Everyone raves when I bring this refreshing, creamy salad to potlucks. For a special finishing touch, sprinkle it with brown sugar and pecans. —Marge Elling, Jenison, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:21-24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 pounds seedless red grapes
  • 2 pounds seedless green grapes
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until blended. Add grapes and toss to coat.
  • 2. Transfer to a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pecans just before serving. Yield: 21-24 servings.

Recipe Note


Test Kitchen Tips

  • In many recipes, thick and tangy Greek yogurt stands in beautifully for sour cream and lightens things up.
  • Mix in chopped candy bars. Crunchy Snickers and Heath bars play particularly well with the juicy grapes.

    "I made this as directed for Easter dinner and think the 'dressing' seems too heavy (and twice what is needed). If I make it again I would use 3 oz. of cream cheese, 1/2 C. sour cream and substitute brown sugar for the white sugar and skip sprinkling it over the top. I made this according to directions and while it is tasty, the dressing is just too thick for my taste."

    "This is an absolutely fabulous salad. I'm guessing I've made this at least a dozen times since I got the recipe the summer of 2016. Just for fun the other day, I added some blueberries and they were so good in there! I use it as a dessert when I'm craving something sweet. I mix at least a cup or so of chopped walnuts or pecans in instead of sprinkling over the top, and I didn't care so much for the brown sugar, so don't use it at all. This is my favorite salad by far. Wish I could give it ten stars."

Made a mistake and used 16 oz of low fat sour cream, so I didn't use the cream cheese. Nevertheless, everyone loved it. Two days later, what was left over wasn't enough for two so I added some fresh raspberries. Yum! Now we can't decide which we like better, so I will be making both, probably with just the sour cream."

My recipe calls for almond extract and a little brown sugar in the dressing also but is otherwise the same. The biggest challenge to me is getting the grapes dry after washing so that the dressing sticks. Otherwise it just slides off.

Not a cheap dish to make when you add up all the ingredients. I thought the cream cheese mix was tasty, although heavy. Honestly, thought with all the rave reviews that we would be "wowed", but in the end, not one person of 15 folks (kids included) mentioned that they liked it. I would not make again."

    "I have made this for years and always get rave reviews. I prefer it with grapes but have made it with many fruits. It is pretty good with blueberries and strawberries on the 4th of July. The only thing I do differently is to combine the pecans and the brown sugar and sprinkle it on the salad before I refrigerate it for several hours. Right before I serve it, I give it a final stir to mix it in. The brown sugar melts a little bit into the pecans and is not quite as "grainy.""

    "This is a great recipe! I'd always considered that doing anything to grapes except eating them right off the bunch was gilding the lily, but after tasting this, I decided if you are going to "gild," this was the gilding to do! I'd never made this myself before today, though. We had a bunch of white grapes that were just a bit too tart for us to enjoy eating by themselves, so I mixed this up. It's so quick and so easy, and very forgiving of substitutions--I found that I didn't have sour cream, so used 0% plain Greek yogurt, and then discovered that I'd accidentally grabbed fat free cream cheese at the store, which is a slightly different creature to me than regular or lowfat. And I had no pecans, so I chopped up some almonds. Even with all that, this came out wonderfully, and tasted very similar to what I've had in the past at various gatherings."
