Best Grape Salad

"I got this recipe from a coworker at the salon I work at. I didn't think it would be so wonderful and addictive! It's very creamy and sweet, and a great mix of flavors. It will be the best thing you ever use grapes for (except maybe wine!)."

    I wonder can you do this with strawberries instead of grapes?

    This is an awesome recipe & I usually like to follow what the ingredients call for & not alter it but..... I have had this recipe where I thought I was eating a mouthful of brown sugar - I use 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar & make sure you let it set overnight - it softens the sugar where it is not so gritty. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!

    DO NOT SKIP THE TOPPING!!! It is what makes this so addictive. I have substituted different nuts like walnuts and hazelnuts. Just be sure they are toasted first to get the best flavor. I don't think I've ever chilled it overnight, but it tastes better the first day of making it than the next IMO. I also don't mix in the topping until I'm ready to serve it. It's perfect for BBQs.

    This is like crack in a bowl. <br/>Making it for the second time this week. So so so good.

    This was a hit at my company potluck. Everyone wants the recipe and this was the only empty dish at the end of lunch. I used low fat sour cream, low fat cream cheese and sugar substitues (white and brown). I also put the topping on the side so everyone could have some, not just the people who got to the bowl 1st. I will make this again and again.

    We loved this! Definitely want to use the topping - it blows the top off this salad/dessert. I was afraid the amount was too much, or it would be too sweet, but it was just delicious. Will pass along the recipe, and make again.

    Do yourself a favor and get an 8 oz. tub of whipped cream cheese. It's way easier to mix! I also toned down the brown sugar in the topping, but my grapes were pretty sweet all in their own. Great for a covered dish party!

    I used brown sugar in the dressing instead of granulated. Also, cream the cheese and brown sugar together before adding the sour cream and vanilla. Much less work getting the lumps out.

    Addictive!!!<br/>Made this for Christmas...And I am still craving it! I am going to attempt a low fat lower sugar version with nonfat Cream cheese and sour cream and splenda or truvia.<br/>I also used chopped pretzel sticks in the topping instead of nuts. But I would suggest adding as it is served or the pretzels get yucky. <br/>You can't go wrong with this...It is delicious, light, and refreshing AND addictive.
