Delicious Grape Salad

August 30, 2017

Delicious Grape Salad

Most of my favorite salads include grapes. I put them in almost every tossed salad I make. I love them. They are the perfect combination of crispiness and sweetness.  A few nights ago,  I decided to make a salad of the grapes I’d found stashed in the back of the refrigerator.  I’ve tasted ‘grape salad’ at dinners we’ve attended before and I always thought something was missing. It was just a little boring. Mostly a mixture of sour cream and cream cheese. I decided to work on the recipe and add a little zing…. I did some experimenting and this is what I came up with…a really Delicious Grape Salad!

4 cups red grapes

I started with 4 cups of sliced red grapes. Any seedless grape will do, but I prefer the red. I always cut my grapes and cherry tomatoes in half when using in a salad.  I personally don’t like to bite into a cherry tomato and squirt the person across the table and I prefer not to be squirted either!   And it just seems more lady -like not to put a whole grape or tomato in my mouth, at once. So to keep things civil and neat, I always slice them in half. You don’t have to, but I do.

I chopped 1/4 cup of red onion and  1/4 cup of celery.  Add  1 cup of coarsely chopped toasted pecans and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Toss with grapes. ( Reserve 1/4 cup pecans for garnish if you like, I forgot to!)

Mix together 4 oz of softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 white cup sugar.  Combine with grape mixture.

At this point you may serve, or keep in refrigerator over night. The flavors do meld together beautifully overnight, but I had no complaints serving it the day I made it, either.

I accidently put all of my pecans in the mixture. I meant to reserve 1/4 cup to garnish the top…maybe next time I will remember.

This recipe will serve at least 8 if not 10, easily. It’s a wonderful accompaniment to any meal. Enjoy!

    I make a salad just like yours but I add shredded chicken, I also use mayonnaise but I guess your dressing will work well. It is delicious and perfect for sandwich too.

      I make a chicken salad similar, too! I never thought to make sandwich out of this! Might have to try it!
