  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 c. sour cream or non-fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1/4 c. white sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 lbs seedless red grapes
  • 2 lbs seedless green grapes
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp chopped pecans


  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, yogurt, white sugar and vanilla until blended. Add grapes and toss to coat.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Sprinkle with brown sugar blend and pecans just before serving.



  • We recommend using the full fat versions of cream cheese and sour cream. If you use low-fat options the dressing isn’t as creamy and can get watery.
  • We recommend making sure the grapes are dry after rinsing them off so the dressing doesn’t get watery. Simply wash off grapes in a colander, then spread out on paper towels and blot of excess water.
  • There is about 2 1/2 c. in a pound of grapes.
  • If you have young kids feel free to cut the grapes in half so it’s safer for them to eat.
  • Instead of chopped pecans you can substitute another nut like walnuts or you can even use chopped candy bars like Butterfingers or Snickers!
