Are you feeling stumped as to what to bring for a potluck? This recipe for Grape Salad is sure to be a hit! Grape Salad is said to have come from a Minnesotan who made it for family gatherings at Thanksgiving. The original Grape Salad recipe contains sour cream, but to make this recipe healthy, we used Greek yogurt instead. Besides adding creaminess, Greek yogurt is high in protein, calcium, and probiotics, which promote a healthy digestive system.

What else is in this recipe? Grapes, of course! We used two different types: red and green seedless grapes, so you're getting a nice blend of sweetness and tartness. Then we added cream cheese for even more creaminess, pecans for nuttiness and crunch, white sugar, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract to intensify the flavors. You may also try another variety of salad, like Pickle Salad.

 

What is grape salad made of?

This grape salad comprises red and green seedless grapes, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, white sugar, vanilla extract, pecans, and coconut sugar.

Where did Grape Salad originate?

Grape Salad originated from Minnesota. A Minnesota-born heiress made it as part of her family holiday buffet at Thanksgiving.

How many carbs are in grape salad?

There are 33.1 grams of net carbs in a grape salad.

Can you cut grapes for grape salad?

You could if you plan to eat the grape salad in one sitting. However, if you cut the grapes in half, the liquid from the grapes will ooze a bit and make the dressing (cream cheese and Greek yogurt) a bit runny.
