This is a wonderful salad! Would someone, please, comment on the amount of grapes they used in this salad? Did they use 4 pounds, or 4 cups? Four pounds would be about 8 cups. Remember “A pint’s a pound the world around”. Our local price of grapes, yesterday was $2.99 per pound. That really adds up for a salad that only serves 8!
Wonderful refreshing recipe for hot summer days (& any other time of the year!) It was so easy to prepare well ahead. I used both red and green grapes – so pretty! I took it to a salad luncheon and everyone asked for the recipe. My husband really liked this salad, too. THIS IS A WINNER!
Absolutely delish! I know this recipe as Grapes Rockefeller without the brown sugar and nuts. The first time I had it, it was made with low-fat sour cream and low-fat cream cheese. Frankly that is the only way I make it since my family loves it! I always make it with red and green grapes for the color contrast. I’m thinking that strawberries, bananas and even blueberries would taste great paired with that yummy ‘cheesecake-type’ sauce. My teenage boys LOVE this stuff!
This recipe is a crowd pleaser! I modified it by using both green & red grapes and by sprinkling the brown sugar and nuts over the top and melting the sugar under the broiler for 30-60 seconds for a crispy topping. I brought it to a potluck at work and EVERYONE begged for the recipe! It’s so different and just fabulous! It could be breakfast, lunch, a side-dish, or even dessert! Very yummy!
Wonderful!! Would not change a thing. Took this to a shower Sunday, and it was the definite hit of the party! People were practically licking the bowl when it was empty. I put it in a pampered chef chillzane bowl(one that you freeze and it keeps stuff cold), and left it in the freezer for about an hour before serving. I think this made it even better.

When this recipe is done, you can use the low fat sour cream and cream cheese. You can also use Splenda. You can use any other fruits you want. (If you use apples, be sure to do a lemon juice/water bath on them first.) You can also sprinkle with brown sugar
