  1. We LOVE grape salad here!  It’s such a random thing, either people know about it and love it or they’ve never heard of it.  Sooooo good!

  2. This is one of my favorite side dishes!  Love the crunch of the nuts and the sweetness of the grapes!!!

  3. This sounds fantastic!  I love the combo of the mixed color grapes and this is the kind of salad I think will be brilliant over the holidays!  Light, cool and with the crunch of the pecans…. perfect!  

  4. This is our kind of salad! Fresh and fruity with some great crunch!

  5. what a great side dish! we love pecans and grapes!

  6. Would this still work well if I cut the grapes in half for my grandkids. 

  7. Hi, this looks extremely delicious, I’m on weight watchers and I keyed in the recipe in my app to find out how many points it would cost me. Its 11 points per serving, but the only thing I don’t know is what would you consider a serving size? would it be 1 cup? or 1/2 cup? please help me. I would love to make this dish, but I would like to stay on plan as well. Thx a bunch for the awesome recipe.

  8. Has anyone tried adding fresh strawberries to this dish?

  9. I’ve made this salad twice…both times well received, but it was very sweet. I think the next time I make it, I’ll cut way back on the brown sugar. Also, the brown sugar starts turning the mixture an unappetizing color after folks serve themselves and the sugar gets stirred up in the grape mixture.

  10. I just made this salad and found the proportions of dressing to grapes is way out of proportion – I added at least an extra cup of each type of grape and I feel there is still too much dressing!

    Tastes delicious though!

  11. I’ve made a similar salad but it’s called grape Greek yougurt salad and you use the same ingredients but instead of sour cream you use plain Greek yougurt with honey or just plain yougurt and add your own honey, and then you use the whipped cream cheese, but I’m going go try this one as as well 

  12. I made this for a potluck at work and it is really good. Everybody enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing!

  13. This looks delicious but this is a lot of added sugar. Have you, or any other readers, ever made this with less or even no sugar? Thank you.

  14. What a cute site you have! This looks SOOO delicious! 

  15. Grapes, walnuts, cream cheese – now you’re talking my language! I like this mix up from the usual cheesy dips that market tail gating food. I love how easy this is to whip up and transport!

  16. Looks so yummy, I’m pinning this now! Thanks for sharing!

  17. I usually forget about enjoying grapes in other ways than just eating them plain! This salad sounds so good!

  18. Grape Salad sounds fabulous. I’m going to a family reunion next weekend and this would be great to bring along!

  19. I am relatively sure this would be a hit at my house! Trying it soon.

  20. Wow! I’ve never had grape salad but I just want to dive right into that bowl.
    Have a beautiful weekend Jenn!

  21. Well..this looks absolutely delish! My girls love grapes and I think this would get them to branch out in to some new, healthy combos!

  22. I have been looking for a way to get the hubs to actually eat some fruits or veggies, and you just ended my quest. I have heard of this kind of salad, but never made it..and that has GOT to change! Pinned!
