Looks pretty good ... although I think I'd put it in the dessert category!

It is sweet - but traditionally served here as a Thanksgiving side dish.

See the Thanksgiving menu posts.

Doesn't sound very good to me.
But my mom might like it.
What are the dietary factors?

Cals and fat?

Looks great I don't know anyone who has made a Grape Salad before. Thanks Sharon for sharing.

I've made my version of it for years - it has a name but I can't think of it. It's just the green grapes, sour cream, and brown sugar - it's wonderful and refreshing.

Hi Sharon,
I've had this one before and love it. Thanks for reminding me..We are thinking of a fruit salad for Thanksgiving and this just might do it.

I make a savory rather than sweet salad that includes grapes - makes a terrific lunch or light supper dish. All quantities are to taste:

Plain or smoked cooked chicken, cut or shred into bite-size pieces
Smoked Gouda cheese, diced
Red &/or green seedless grapes, halved
Walnut or pecan pieces
Mayonnaise, salt, & freshly ground pepper to taste

Combine, chill, & serve.

Thanks for that idea - I've had chicken salad with grapes and nuts in, but never one with Gouda cheese. Love Gouda cheese...

Hmmm -- dietary factors -- schmietary factors... this was posted for a Thanksgiving menu suggestion... You can't really look that sort of thing up for Thanksgiving... <just kidding>

However, I expect this dessert-like salad would have at least 400 calories per serving; don't know about the fat grams.

And it is a great addition to the Thanksgiving buffet.
