Grape Salad

Grape Salad Recipe

This Grape Salad recipe is deceptively simple. Even though there’s not much to it, it’s so delicious! It’s also really easy to throw together and is really refreshing.

Grape Salad

Since you can make it ahead of time, this is a great barbecue or potluck side dish. I always like to take something that I can make when I have the time rather than having to scramble to get it together last minute.

Grape Salad Recipe

One note – if you’re going to make it ahead of time, wait until just before serving it to add the pecans so they don’t lose their crunch.

  • 8 oz . plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 8 oz . reduced-fat cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 c . granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp . vanilla
  • 1/4 c . brown sugar packed

    This sounds perfect for summer! I could see adding a few different types of fruit to this; such as a watermelon grape salad. I’ll definitely have to try this out!

    This looks and sounds so good! I feel incredibly silly to ask, but would this normally be eaten as a side dish or dessert? I’ve never seen anything like it here in the UK. I’m intrigued!

      Thanks! It’s not silly. It’s normally a side, but, since it’s sweet, we usually eat it for dessert. If you have any other questions, please let me know! =)
