Great light dessert! I cut the recipe down to 4 servings but added extra grapes as there seemed to be too much dressing. I used lemon yogurt instead of sour cream & I think that it tastes best just slightly chilled. The grapes have more flavor then. My grandkids will love this too...thanks for the recipe jowolf2!

Just good, some of the kids at our pool party liked them but overall they were a bit unattractive and goopy

Absolutely a 5 for taste; however I do agree with the other reviewers that there is much too much dressing. Not a problem because the amount that's left is going to make a yummy fruit dip snack for me later... For calorie counters, how about just serving the grapes with a dollop of the dressing on top? Next time I make this, I hope to have fresh mint from the garden as I think it would be a great addition and garnish. Thanks for the quick and easy and GOOD tasting recipe.

This was great! I tried melting and heating the brown sugar/butter in the microwave, but it didn't work too well as I just couldn't get it to blend well. Oh well, never mind the looks, the taste was terrific! Next time though either I'm adding more grapes as the sauce was really generous. So easy, thanks!

I really liked this. Next time I will omit the powdered sugar and I'll make the "sauce" as a dip instead so that I have more portion control :=) I need to eat more fruit, less dip! Thanks for the recipe!
