Grape Salad Recipe

If you didn’t know by now, we are from Utah - which means that Jello and fruit “salads” are staples in our homes! This Grape Salad with cream cheese sauce and topped with walnuts is one of our family's favorites! We think you'll love it too!

We are always getting together as a family and we love having a big variety of side dishes to enjoy. This Creamy Grape Fruit Salad has been a family favorite for years.

My favorite part about this recipe is the amazing cream cheese sauce.  Not only isn’t easy to make, but it has the perfect amount of sweetness that goes great with grapes.

We especially love making this recipe in the summertime!  It is sweet enough that you could eat it for dessert or for a light, refreshing snack!

This recipe can be thrown together in just a few minutes and can easily be stored in the fridge for up to a day in advance if you were making it for a party!

I’ll let you in on a little secret, if you don’t have grapes you can easily substitute them for other fresh fruit like strawberries, blueberries and even apples.  The possibilities are endless!

This recipe does use cream cheese, so if you are looking for something a little healthier you will love our Honey Lime Fresh Fruit Salad or our Greek Yogurt Fruit Salad.  If you really want to enjoy a creamy, fruity treat then try our Berry Cheesecake Fruit Salad!
