Creamy Nut and Grape Salad Recipe

This delicious nut and grape salad recipe features plump, juicy grapes, as well as two kinds of nuts, and a creamy dressing. Although this could be served as a dessert, it is versatile and would also make a tasty breakfast or even a snack in the late afternoon when you are hungry but it is not quite dinnertime.

Fruit and nuts are healthy, of course, and if you want to make this even healthier you can swap the white sugar for sweetener, and use reduced-fat sour cream and cream cheese. The grape salad recipe might lack a little richness but it will still be flavorful. This is best made with toasted nuts, but do not stir them into the mixture until just before serving else they will get soggy.

Toast the nuts by spreading them over a baking sheet in one layer, then cook at 350 degrees F for about twelve minutes, keeping an eye on them so they do not burn. Feel free to use hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, chestnuts, or almonds if you like. If you prefer to toast them on the stovetop you can use a dry pan (do not add oil or butter) and toast the nuts in there, shaking the pan often.

This picture shows you how nice and creamy this grape salad recipe is. The sweet soft grapes go well with the crunchy toasted nuts, and the sour cream and cream cheese sauce is lovely. This makes a good dessert, or you could leave out the sugar and serve it on a bed of mixed salad leaves. Feel free to use only red grapes or only green ones, or mix and match if you prefer. If you are not using seedless ones, you can remove the seeds when you cut them in half. Smaller grapes can be left whole.
