May 12, 2019I tasted this salad at a funeral 3 years ago. I could not get enough of it! I'm so happy to have found the exact recipe here.

Apr 22, 2019This sweet salad drew raves at my Easter dinner...even though I forgot to add the brown sugar and pecans at the end. I add those to my leftovers and I really loved the added texture from the pecans. The recipe makes a large amount, making it perfect for a potluck. I halved the recipe for a my smaller group and still had some left for the next day.
Apr 1, 2019My husband's family has been using this exact recipe for years. It's deceptively good. We make it in a 9x13 pan and sprinkle the top with brown sugar and nuts. Walnuts are great here, and pecans also work really well. It's definitely a go-to potluck dish in our household. Never thought about adding chopped up candy bars, but I can see how that would be delicious!
Mar 20, 2019Great idea...BUT. whole grapes are a 'CHOKING' hazard ! I never serve whole ...always cut in half !!
Mar 14, 2019This makes a huge salad so even for family events, I half the recipe. Very good.
Dec 21, 2018Everybody loves this salad. It's easy and makes for a great "bring something" dish. I really like it sans the brown sugar and nuts. I think it's perfect all by itself, but the garnish does make it look better. I make it at night and let it sit in fridge until the next day. Make sure grapes are dry before combining.
Nov 23, 2018I made this for Thanksgiving, very delicious.
Jul 23, 2018i made this for the first time just because I love grapes. My family agreed and it has become a favorite of my grandchildren as well. Cool, refreshing, different and not too sweet.
