I like to serve Easy Grape Salad really well chilled and then each bite into a grape is like a cool, refreshing treat.

If you’re tired of bringing the same old pasta salad or potato salad to every potluck you go to, change it up with this Easy Grape Salad. People will quickly become converts. There is nothing not to love about this easy dessert salad that’s so sweet and satisfying.

The grapes (I use both red and green) get coated in a creamy mixture of cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla extract. I also like to add some toffee bits for added sweetness and extra crunch. You could chop up a few Heath bars instead for the same effect.

A mixture of brown sugar and chopped pecans gets added on top. It’s as easy as that!

Be sure to wash and dry your grapes well. I like to rinse them in a colander and then spread them out on paper towels to dry for a few hours.

  1. If going to store overnite, is it ok to add to add toffee bits before hand or wait till serving time? Will the soften?

  2. Can you cut the grapes in half? I want to serve this at a party that will have small children; halved grapes are safer for little ones. Thank you 😊

  3. I have been making this grape salad for years and it is always a hit. You know it’s good when you get asked for the recipe.

  4. I’ve made a similar salad numerous times in years past, and it always so delicious and refreshing! The only differences were that nuts and brown sugar were not in it. Instead, we mixed the rest of the ingredients and let it sit covered overnight in the refrigerator. Then when ready to serve, we added some kind of crunchy granola cereal or crudely crushed granola bars. Always a crowd pleaser! Think I will actually make it for Christmas this year – colors are perfect!
