Grape Salad Recipe

This recipe can be either a dessert or side dish. My family loves eating sweet side dishes – jello “salad”, marshmallow fluff salad, and this snickers salad. Grape salad is great for bringing to potlucks and picnics.

Grape Salad Ingredients

To make one of my favorite grape recipes, you will need the following ingredients (see the recipe card below for exact amounts):

  • Whipped cream cheese: whipped cream cheese is way easier to mix
  • Mascarpone cheese
  • Cool Whip
  • Grapes: using both red and green grapes makes this dish so pretty. Of course, you can use just one or the other.
  • Powdered sugar
  • Walnut pieces
  • Brown sugar

How to Make Grape Dessert Salad

  2. Add grapes. Fold grapes into mixture and pour into a 2-3 quart serving dish or bowl.
  3. Add toppings. Sprinkle with brown sugar and walnut pieces.

Do I Need to Chill this Dessert Salad before Serving?

No. The only time you will need to chill this recipe is if you choose to let your whipped cream cheese and mascarpone cheese set at room temperature prior to mixing.

Storage Instructions

This recipe will last up to 4 days if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Grape Salad Tips

  • Choose grapes that are firm and do not have splits or soft spots. This will help to ensure your grape salad leftovers stay fresh.
  • You can add more brown sugar for extra sweetness and more walnuts to your preference.
  • You can eliminate the powdered sugar if you do not want the salad to be as sweet.
  • You can cut the grapes in half if you have large grapes to make the salad easier to eat.
  • I always recommend using Cool Whip whipped topping because generic brands seem to be more watery.
