Okay I just wanted to add my review of a very similiar recipe. It contained 2 packages of seedless red or black grapes 8 oz. cream cheese 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped pecans. The cream cheese and sugar gets blended together with the pecans and grapes being folded in until coated. It is a wonderful fruit salad that just happens to have just grapes. I know it is a preference thing but I've had sooo many people ask me for the recipe. Nancy's recipe sounds great too...if not a little "lighter" with the whipped cream instead of sugar. Anyway hope you enjoy. Read More

Even though this was relatively fast to throw together we didn't care for it all that well. Might try it again with a well-drained can of fruit cocktail. Read More

I used 8 oz of heavy cream that I whipped with Equal instead of the Cool Whip. I also used drained Mandarin oranges instead of the grapes. It came out delicious and low carb since cream Equal & Cream Cheese are very low in carbs. Next time I will add pecans as well. Read More

I made this recipe but it was missing something. We ate it but didn't really care for it. I had tasted this before and was trying to recreat it. The second time I made it I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/4 cup of sugar and whipped it into the cream cheese. Perfect! I will always make it with the additional ingredients. Read More

I'm no a huge fan of cool whip or cream cheese in fruit salads. I more prefer flavored yogurts mayo or sour cream as a dressing. But I have one question "WHERE'S THE FRUIT?" My little granddaughter loves fruit salads and particularly grapes but she turned her little nose skyward! Sorry I won't be making this again. Read More

This was a super easy and good recipe. The family loved it....my suggestion would be to eat it in small amount because it's really rich. Read More

This recipe tasted good. I added about 2 tbsp. of sugar and 2-3 times the amount of grapes. If i hadn't added the grapes we would have been eating only cool whip and cream cheese with a garnish of grapes! It was easy but probably not one I would rave to my friends about. Read More

I thought this recipe was good and my 15 year old daughter thought it was GREAT! It was light and refreshing. I added more grapes than the recipe called for and a little bit of sugar. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More
