I make this recipe, but I do mine different--here is what I do! Instead of Marshmallow cream I use 1 cup of sour cream. Mix the cream cheese and sour cream together add 1/2 cup of white sugar and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix all this. Then add your grapes, fold the grapes into cream cheese mixture. transfer this mixture into your serving dish. Before you go to serve the salad top it with 1/3 cup of brown sugar, sprinkle it on top of grape salad. You can then top it with almonds or I use pecans. this is the best recipe! It is a very refreshing snack or dessert! even my children love it!! You'll be glad you made this one!! Read More

YUM!! This was excellent! Messy to make but worth it! I mixed the cream cheese & marshmallow cream w/my mixer-MUCH easier you don't get clumps of cream cheese. We aren't fans of anything w/nuts but I had to try it & oh my!! I happened to use pecans & it was incredible-nuts in this are a must! I thought it looked great too(not sure why others didn't so). As soon as I set it on the table everyone ooohed & ahhhed. I may add a little whipped cream next time just to thin it out a bit because it is sticky & thick. Oh-I weighed out my grapes AFTER pulling stems picking thru & rinsing & seemed to be a perfect ratio of ingredienst. If anything maybe could've added a few more grapes. Thank you for a great recipe!! UPDATE: If you're not serving imediately take along some whipped cream to stir in just before serving. Once it sits awhile it does get kind of ugly:) The whipped cream brings it back to life & it should last throughout the meal even on a buffet line. Read More

Oh how simple and oh how delicious. The key to putting this over the top: TOAST those almonds! Pop 'em in the toaster oven or toss in a saute pan until golden brown; the taste intensifies and really makes this salad perfect. Yummy and simple and different and super-easy to make. This dish does not keep well though--serve it within a few hours of making it; the sauce gets runny. Read More

Very yummy! I used nefuchatel (sp?) cheese instead of cream cheese and added 1.5 tbsp of vanilla. I used all green grapes as that is what I had and omitted the nuts as I didn't have them. I used just shy of 4 cups of small grapes. The 'dressing' is delicious and would have liked more of it so next time I'll cut back on the grapes. Thanks for a great salad! Read More

Nice different. I took it to a brunch and was asked for the recipe. I think next time I will try it with peanuts instead (or without nuts for my allergic daughter). Read More
