RECIPE: Grape Salad

Posted by southernrn (My Page) on

Hey guys! Just got this recipe from a friend of mine, and it is really a light and delicious treat, especially in the summer. Just wanted to share...

Grape salad

4# of seedless grapes (green or purple)
1 8oz package of cream cheese
1 8 oz container sour cream
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 ounces chopped pecans
2 tbsp brown sugar

Wash and dry grapes. In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla, and white sugar. Add grapes and mix until evenly incorporated. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pecans, mix again and refrigerate until serving.

**In the batch I made today I used fat free cream cheese and low fat sour cream, and used 1/2 cup splenda instead of white sugar, and it tastes just as good!!!

RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

i tried this for a meeting at work and everyone seemed to love it. i would skip the brown sugar/nuts next time though.

1 1/2 c powdered sugar
12 oz cool whip

Beat cream cheese, add in powdered sugar, cool whip and vanilla. Stir in grapes. Place in serving bowl and top with brown sugar.

RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

I just saw a very similar recipe to this in the latest issue of Taste of Home. Seems to be a popular dish right now.

RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

I made your recipe for grape salad and served it to guests last night. They loved it, and asked for the recipe. It think I'll be keeping this recipe, too.


RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

Wow this sounds great!
Any idea of how far in advance this can be made?
I need to take something to a pot luck on Sunday. Is today too soon to make it? Just so happens I have everything listed in the recipe.

RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

I've posted this before but it's always a hit & maybe you'll enjoy them as well.

1 lb large, seedless red grapes
10 oz pecans
4 TBL crumbled Roquefort cheese
8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
2 TBL heavy cream
Wash the grapes & pat dry. Crush the pecans on a platter or sheet of waxed paper. Combine the Roquefort, cream cheese & cream in a bowl & mix well. Roll the grapes in the cheese mixture & then in the pecans, coating well. Chill, covered, until serving time.~~ First Impressions

RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

I probably wouldn't make it until the night before. And if you choose one of the recipes that takes brown sugar, put that on right before serving.


RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

Thank you Tracey.
I'll hold off a couple of days.

RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

I have made the grape salad, and toasted the pecans. Delicious!

RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

That's similar to the one I got from a cookbook of mine but the proportions are different. I like the brown sugar on it though as well as the nuts.

GRAPE SALAD (serves 8-10)
1 lb red grapes
1 lb green grapes
8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
8 oz container sour cream
1 TBL vanilla
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Place grapes in a large serving bowl. Combine cheese & granulated sugar, stirring well. Combine sour cream & vanilla in a separate bowl.
combine cream cheese mixture & sour cream mixture. Add to grapes, stirring well. Top w/brown sugar & pecans. DO NOT STIR. Cover & chill overnight.~~What Can I Bring? Jr League of N. Virginia

RE: RECIPE: Grape Salad

I am looking for a grape salad recipe that is similar to this one but gets baked instead of chilled. Would any one know of the recipe and where I can find it?
