Grape Salad - this recipe is so perfect for potlucks and barbecues! The dressing is unbelievably delicious!

Don’t let the name of this fool you, it’s definitely not healthy! But man, is it good!

I made this strawberry pretzel salad last week and my 3 year old kept asking me why it was red. After telling him over and over again that it was because it had strawberries in it, he told me that he wanted a purple one. With grapes. And grape jello.

And while I couldn’t stomach anymore jello (I hate the stuff!) I did find this recipe and I knew everyone would love it. It’s basically just grapes tossed in a deliciously sweet dressing of cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar.  And then it’s topped with brown sugar and pecans. How can it be anything but delicious?!

We are all obsessed with it. This batch went so quickly in my house and my kids are already asking me to make it again! It’s definitely going to become a regular at my house.

Plus, it will be perfect for all those outdoor get-togethers that we’ll all be heading to in the coming months! I’d double the recipe, though, because it’s going to be the first thing gone from the table!
