Green Grape Salad

Recipe by  

"This is a wonderful dessert salad that never failed to be a hit. Made the day before the brown sugar makes the sauce taste like caramel. You can use less brown sugar, if you wish."

This is a wonderful salad! Would someone, please, comment on the amount of grapes they used in this salad? Did they use 4 pounds, or 4 cups? Four pounds would be about 8 cups. Remember "A pint's a pound the world around". Our local price of grapes, yesterday was $2.99 per pound. That really adds up for a salad that only serves 8!

I don't get it!? Maybe I did something wrong. I thought this salad was terrible and looked awful. I keep thinking I must have made some terrible error because it was rated so high.

This is the best grape salad. I use red and green grapes. Letting it chill overnight, then adding the nuts before serving is the key!

This recipe is a crowd pleaser! I modified it by using both green & red grapes and by sprinkling the brown sugar and nuts over the top and melting the sugar under the broiler for 30-60 seconds for a crispy topping. I brought it to a potluck at work and EVERYONE begged for the recipe! It's so different and just fabulous! It could be breakfast, lunch, a side-dish, or even dessert! Very yummy!

I got this recipe from a party a few weeks ago and have made it several times since! This weekend I'm trying it with grapes, strawberries, blueberries, and mand. oranges. There were a few people who didn't like it.......I can't imagine why???? They must've done something wrong because it's seriously GOOD! Try the recipe again...maybe you forgot an ingredient, and definitely use a mixer with anything with cream cheese to beat out the "chunks". Enjoy!

After reading the reviews and finding out this recipe makes alot more than 8 servings I scaled the recipe to 2 servings. I used 2 1/2 cups total of green and purple grapes. The recipe does not state the cream cheese should be softened at room temperature. In order to blend with sour cream I did let mine sit out. I refrigerated 5 hours prior to topping with a sprinkling of brown sugar and diced walnuts and almonds. I nice variation on using leftover grapes. However, I think my green grapes were very tart and may use all purple grapes next time. *UPDATE* I sprinkled a bit more brown sugar and refrigerated overnight...much better flavor the next day!!

I brought this salad to work and everyone LOVED it! It really doesn't look as good as it tastes, but once everyone tried it they went back for more. And they all wanted the recipe!
