Simple, delicious recipes from my kitchen to your table.

The Best Grape Salad Ever

Grape Salad

This grape salad is seriously the best recipe ever—and I’m not saying this lightly! I used to make this recipe all of the time. It is so addicting, creamy, and rich. When I say addicting, I really mean it. You can’t just eat a couple of grapes. In fact, the last time I ate this grape salad was about 8 years ago. See, a friend and I were coming back from NYC and were craving it. So, we make a quick detour to pick up the ingredients and hurried home to make this dessert. It was so addicting that we ate about a pound of grapes each. We ended up having bellyaches like children at Christmastime. I decided then and there sprawled out that I had no self control with this grape salad and wasn’t allowed to make it.

Grape Salad

I recently started craving it again. I decided to take the plunge and make it for a treat for my coworkers (and to help me have some self control). This salad is just as good as I remember it and it is super easy to make. Plus, if you are looking for a fruit dip for a party platter for your holiday parties, just subtract the grapes and nuts and you won’t have a piece of fruit left on your platter.

The Best Grape Salad Ever

2lbs green grapes
8 oz 1/3 less cream cheese
8 oz sour cream
1 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped walnuts


Remove grapes from stems and place in a bowl. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream together the cream cheese, sour cream, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla for a few minutes until the mixture is even and creamy. Chop walnuts to desired sized and fold in the walnuts and cream cheese mixture into the grapes. Fold lightly so that the grapes don’t break. Once mixed, let it chill for about 30 minutes and serve!
