My mother-in-law made this receipe and she altered the topping a little bit. Along with the pecan mixture she added crushed heath bar. It was amazing and addictive! Love this salad!
This was a hit at my sons birthday party. Many asked for the recipe. I only added 1/2 the sugar the recipe called for though... And it was just right for us.
As promised this was a crowd pleaser! Took this to a pot luck and had many, many people begging for the recipe! This is a great, easy, different recipe!!
DEEE-licious!! I made this the first time with the topping, and the 2nd time I was too lazy to bother with that. It was excellent (and devoured!) both ways. I love grapes anyway, but with this recipe, I could not stop eating them. Try this reciepe you won't be disappointed! I used a lot more vanilla than called for, and it didn't hurt it one bit. This recipe deserves all the 5 star ratings it has. (sorry for the rave, it just really is that good)
I love this recipe, especially if you have pure Haitian Vanilla on hand (which I do thanks to a great friend!) It changes the color a bit but adds a great depth of flavor. The only thing I do different is leave off the brown sugar in the topping. Be sure you make it the day before and leave it in the fridge for the flavors to mingle and get yummier and add your pecans to the top just before serving to keep them from getting soggy!
I thought it would be good, but I was really disappointed. This is way too sweet - I brought it to a party and nobody liked it. The grapes are sweet enough, so adding the white sugar & the brown sugar makes it disgustingly sweet.
Everyone loved this recipe. I also added a little Marshmallow Fluff to eat. Yummy!
I can't believe I haven't rated this yet. Out of all the wonderful recipes that I have found on Zaar, this is by far the one I have made the most. It's so easy to prepare, makes enough for a large group and the leftovers are just as good as the first day. Now every time I show up to a party, all I hear is "where is the grape salad". The only thing I do different is to use almonds instead of pecans. Mainly because they are normally half the price. I also toast the nuts with the brown sugar in the oven for a few minutes for a little extra crunch. Thank you so much Jamie. This is a new family favorite.
This recipe sounded weird from the beginning but the review were convincing, so I had to try it. All I can say is wow. What a fun treat. And it was incredibly addicting. Everyone looked at it funny at first and then could not stop eating it. This recipe makes quite a bit and the leftovers kept very well. Except that they did not last for long. Thank you for the fun ;)
Really good! None of the adults planned on liking it, but they all wanted more!
