1 (8 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (6 ounce) tub
whipped cream cheese
halved seedless red grapes
Okay, I just wanted to add my review of a very similiar recipe. It contained 2 packages of seedless red or black grapes, 8 oz. cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped pecans. The cream cheese and sugar gets blended together with the pecans and grapes being folded in until coated. It is a wonderful fruit salad that just happens to have just grapes. I know it is a preference thing but I've had sooo many people ask me for the recipe. Nancy's recipe sounds great too...if not a little "lighter" with the whipped cream instead of sugar. Anyway, hope you enjoy.
Even though this was relatively fast to throw together, we didn't care for it all that well. Might try it again with a well-drained can of fruit cocktail.
I used 8 oz of heavy cream that I whipped with Equal instead of the Cool Whip. I also used drained Mandarin oranges instead of the grapes. It came out delicious and low carb since cream, Equal, & Cream Cheese are very low in carbs. Next time I will add pecans as well.
I'm no a huge fan of cool whip or cream cheese in fruit salads. I more prefer flavored yogurts, mayo, or sour cream as a dressing. But I have one question, "WHERE'S THE FRUIT?" My little granddaughter loves fruit salads and particularly grapes, but she turned her little nose skyward! Sorry, I won't be making this again.
I made this recipe, but it was missing something. We ate it, but didn't really care for it. I had tasted this before and was trying to recreat it. The second time I made it, I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1/4 cup of sugar and whipped it into the cream cheese. Perfect! I will always make it with the additional ingredients.
This was a super easy and good recipe. The family loved it....my suggestion would be to eat it in small amount because it's really rich.
This recipe tasted good. I added about 2 tbsp. of sugar and 2-3 times the amount of grapes. If i hadn't added the grapes we would have been eating only cool whip and cream cheese with a garnish of grapes! It was easy, but probably not one I would rave to my friends about.
This is gross
