This creamy grape salad is so delicious! It is great for parties, pot lucks or any day of the week! Fresh delicious grapes are covered in a sweet creamy dressing and topped with a crunchy roasted nut topping!
I love a potluck, seriously love. I have never walked away from one without a recipe or dish I want to try. Anthony’s swim banquet was no exception. There was this delicious grape concoction that I could have eaten plates full of if I wouldn’t have looked like a crazy person.
I didn’t know who made it, and couldn’t put my finger on exactly on what was in this deliciousness. But then the gods of Pinterest smiled on me, and there was a grape salad looking right at me. It wasn’t the exact recipe but gave me a place to start, and by tweaking it and adding my own topping I made something that I think is even better than the potluck version!!
This is called salad, and involves grapes… but the healthiness stops there. You are forewarned. The name grape salad is quite deceiving!
Here’s what you’ll need for this Creamy Grape Salad-
Have you ever had a creamy grape salad? I’d love to hear other variations!
- 1lb Green Grapes- washed and stems removed
- 1lb Red Grapes- washed and stems removed
- 1- 7.5 oz Container Marshmallow Fluff
- 1- 8 oz Brick Cream Cheese – softened
- 3/4 Cup Toasted Pecans Chopped
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Tbsp Butter – melted
- First, if you haven’t toasted your pecans, put them on a baking sheet and stick them in a 350 degree oven until they are nice and golden brown- about 10 minutes stirring once.
2.I like to cut my grapes into quarters lengthwise. It really doesn’t matter how you cut them (or if you do at all!) but once you have them all chopped you want to make your topping.
3.With an electric mixer combine marshmallow fluff and cream cheese until nice and creamy. Combine with grapes and stir until grapes are nicely coated.
4.In a separate bowl combine melted butter, brown sugar, and nuts, and stir until nice and crumbly.
5.Sprinkle topping over grape mixture. You can stir a little in if you’d like, but it stays nice and crunchy on top.
