Have you tried the grape salad?

I dedicate this post to the Spanny family.

Awhile back, my Grandma came across the recipe for a grape salad, whipped it up and brought it along to one of our many family gatherings. News traveled quickly and the grape salad was a hit.

Have you tried this grape salad? It’s delicious.”

“Isn’t this new grape salad great?”

“Stef, did you try the grape salad.”

I do believe every person at the party asked every other person about the ever so delicious grape salad and it’s been legendary ever since.

I recently whipped it up for a little BBQ gathering I held at my house. And once again, the grape salad stole the show.


  • 2 lbs red seedless grapes
  • 4 oz low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 C. low-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 Tbsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 C. brown sugar
  • 1/2 C. chopped pecans

Wash, pluck and dry the grapes. Set aside. Mix cream cheese, sour cream and vanilla. Add mixture to grapes and mix thoroughly. Top with brown sugar and pecans.

This is a simple, delicious recipe that is easy to whip up in a pinch. You’ll have everyone asking, “Have you tried the grape salad?”

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
