Whenever my extended family gets together for holidays, everyone has the “thing” they bring. My cousin is the one that brings her grape salad. With the heat wave hitting this summer, cream cheese grape salad is becoming my go-to cold treat to take to potlucks and cookouts.
Cream Cheese Grape Salad
There a lot of variations of this recipe on the internet. Spicy Southern Kitchen makes a very similar salad with pecans which I personally love, but I know not all people love nuts. I also was in a hurry and didn’t know where my nuts were in the midst of my kitchen remodel. Cream cheese grape salad has five simple ingredients and is a cool, refreshing side dish for any potluck or pitch-in.
Start with two pounds of red grapes and two pounds of green grapes. Pull the grapes from the stems and rinse with cold water. I make my grape salad in a trifle bowl.
When smooth and creamy, pour the cream cheese and sour cream dressing over the grapes.
Sprinkle more brown sugar to the top of the cream cheese grape salad. Refrigerate until you are ready to serve or head to the potluck. Be warned, people will start eating this grape salad with their fingers as soon as you set it on the counter.
Cream cheese grape salad is an easy 5-ingredient fruit salad recipe made with red and green grapes, cream cheese, sour cream, and brown sugar.

- 2 pounds green grapes
- 1 cup sour cream
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar, divided
Remove all the grapes from the stems. Rinse with cold water and put in a large serving bowl.
In a smaller bowl, mix together the softened cream cheese, sour cream and 1/2 cup of the brown sugar. When smooth, pour over the grapes.
Mix the cream cheese dressing into all the grapes. Sprinkle the remaining, 1/4 cup brown sugar over the top of the salad.
Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
