Deliciously Sprinkled

Pecan Crunch Grape Salad


 Creamy and sweet with a cool, crisp crunch that makes a perfect side dish for any party.


With football season in full swing , and tailgating the main weekend event these day I’m always getting asked to bring at least one or two my delicious desserts with me to the party but last weekend I wanted to switch things up and bring one of my favorite side dishes.


This Pecan Crunch Grape Salad is creamy and sweet with a cool, crisp crunch that makes a perfect side dish for any party. It’s one of those “salads” that isn’t really a “salad”, but instead just a whole lot of yummy.


So when I saw the bags of delicious green and red grapes in the Walmart Produce aisle, I knew I had to make this delicious salad for the tailgate party.


I knew this grape salad was going to be perfect because Walmart Produce is fresh, farmer picked produce with a 100% money back guarantee, which makes a food blogger like me, a very happy girl!



 ADD MORE CRUNCH: If you want more of a crunch, mix in about a cup of the topping into the grape mixture and then right before serving SPRINKLE the remaining topping on top. It’s even more delicious with an added crunch throughout.


 MAKE AHEAD: This side dish is perfect for making the night before your party. Chilling this salad overnight is the best. If you can’t let this pecan crunch grape salad chill overnight, no worries you can place it in the fridge for at least 2-4 hours before serving.

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

      Yes, you can cut the grapes in half! 🙂 Your grandkids will love it!

    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.

    • Jenn — June 15th, 2016 @ 11:10 am

      I don’t know much about weight watchers, but I would guess a serving size would be about 1/2 cup. Enjoy! 🙂

    Has anyone tried adding fresh strawberries to this dish?

    • Jenn — May 31st, 2016 @ 1:20 pm

      No, but that sounds amazing! 🙂 I will have to try that the next time I make it!

    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.

    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!

    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

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

    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.

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — October 8th, 2014 @ 10:48 am

      Jan, if you didn’t want so much sugar you could omit the brown sugar and just use plain pecans and walnuts.

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

  10. Mary Frances — September 20, 2014 at 10:24 am

    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!

  11. Joni Mason — September 19, 2014 at 7:41 pm

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

  12. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction — September 19, 2014 at 12:06 pm

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

  13. Marly — September 19, 2014 at 10:49 am

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

  14. Marye @ Restless Chipotle — September 19, 2014 at 10:07 am

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

  15. Melanie | Melanie Makes — September 19, 2014 at 9:40 am

    Such a pretty salad!

  16. Melanie @ Carmel Moments — September 19, 2014 at 8:31 am

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

  17. Marjory @ Dinner-Mom — September 19, 2014 at 8:08 am

    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!

  18. Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness — September 19, 2014 at 6:49 am

    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!
