What Is Grape Salad Made Of?

  • Full grapes – A combination of seedless green and red grapes. Feel free to only use one kind, although it’s best to have both.
  • Cream cheese – The main dressing that coats the grapes.
  • Sour cream – Always soften your cream cheese before using it. This helps it combine well with the rest of the components. To make it healthier, use Greek yogurt instead.
  • Vanilla extract – This adds flavor to the salad.
  • Sugars – A mixture of brown and white sugar pairs deliciously with the dressing.
  • Pecans – Gives the salad that touch of nuttiness and crunch. These can be substituted for walnuts if you prefer.

Can I Make Grape Salad Ahead Of Time?

Of course, I would actually recommend it, since this salad needs to be cooled before serving. It can also be made one day ahead, just leave out the brown sugar and pecans until serving to preserve their crunch. The colder the better!

How Long Does Grape Salad Last?

It will hold up to around 3 to 4 days in a sealed container stored in the fridge, but it will start losing its firm texture.

Can I Cut The Grapes In Half?

Can I Cut The Grapes In Half?

TIPS:

    1. This recipe is best with the full-fat kind of sour cream and cream cheese. This is what provides the creaminess which the low-fat versions don’t.

    2. It’s best to dry the grapes after washing them to avoid transferring any water to the dressing. Use a strainer to rinse them off then lay them out on some paper towels and pat the extra moisture off.

    3. A pound of grapes is the size of around 2 and a half cups.

    4. In case your kids will enjoy this, you will slice the grapes in half to make it easier for them.

    5. Chopped walnuts can be used to replace pecans or jazz it up with some crushed candy bars such as Snickers and Butterfingers.
