Reviews forCreamy Grape Salad
"I took this to a family reunion today and everybody raved about it. and I do mean raved. The bowl came back empty and I had offers to lick the bowl. This is a winner"
"Everyone loves this recipe! For summer, I tried a variation. I substituted fresh strawberries for the red grapes - it was delicious too!"
"We added cool whip to lighten this recipe. Dressing is too thick"
"When I have to tweak a recipe I automatically take a star away. With that being said, this recipe was good and we enjoyed it but it does need the additional brown sugar for me. I added a fourth of a cup and everyone loved it! I will make it again."
"my grandkids that don't like fruit salads loved this. thanks you its great"
"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."
"Good but not excellent"
"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."
"I enjoy this recipe as a way to use my grapes if they aren't getting eaten."
