  • I haven’t always been a fruit lover. In a house with ten kids it seemed like there was always some kind of fruit spilled and then smashed on the kitchen floor. I can remember several times being the lucky one to actually step on the smashed grape.

    Probably until after I got married, fruit and I were still not friends. But a couple of years ago I found a whole new love for it. Now my family and I eat tons of fruit and literally go through pounds of grapes a week.

    This Grape Walnut Salad dresses up regular old grapes and turns them into fabulous dessert salad. It’s creamy and decadent … yet refreshing and light at the same time!

    It’s that time of year when dessert salads are the fresh ending that we want to a meal. This grape salad has beautiful colors with the bright green and red grapes. It’s covered in a cream cheese and sour cream dressing then topped with a little brown sugar and chopped walnuts. The textures and flavors are such a perfect combination.

    Lighten it up: There are many ways to lighten up this grape walnut salad. Try using low fat cream cheese or light sour cream in the dressing for a healthier version of this dessert. I promise you that you will not be able to even tell the difference.
