How To Make Grape Salad:
There are a lot of ways to make this easy and delicious dish and I’m sure if it’s a recipe you grew up with, your grandma or mom has their own classic recipe.
Some people make it with just grapes, but I love the addition of apples, which makes it a great potluck dish for fall and even a great side dish for Thanksgiving! The best part is that it doesn’t need to be cooked!
To make this Grape Salad Recipe, simply beat the whipped cream cheese, Greek yogurt, vanilla, and brown sugar, then add in the chopped apples, sliced grapes, and crunchy walnuts and stir to combine. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Pro Tip: I prefer to give this mixture at least a few hours in the fridge before serving to let the flavor build!
In addition to evoking the flavors of autumn, this recipe highlights the magical combination of apples and cheese.
Plus, it’s a great way to use up the extra fruit you have left over from apple picking!
Apple Grape Salad is a light and refreshing must-have for the Thanksgiving table. Aside from being delicious, it’s so quick and simple to make!
No need to balance your time between making this and the perfect pumpkin pie because it won’t take up any room on the stove, it only requires eight ingredients, and you can even prepare it ahead of time (in fact, it can be made the day before, then stored in the fridge).
And if you’re feasting at someone else’s house, it’s easy to pack up and bring along with you, and it can be eaten immediately – no reheating required!
The holidays will be here before we know it, so now is the time to arm yourself with a handful of easy-to-make recipes, especially ones you can make in a pinch.
