Recipe Box, Lazy Day Grape Salad

I have shared this recipe before,

but its so perfect for summer meals and gatherings,

it’s worth sharing again…

Grapes are wonderful on their own of course

by the handful or perhaps a glass of wine

They are a delicious addition to salad

Even baked on a flatbread!

AND this creamy grape salad is an old fashioned Southern summer favorite

I call it Lazy Day Grape Salad because it’s so easy to put together

It’s cool, sweet, creamy and a little crunchy with chopped pecans

You can serve it just the way it is…

Or on top of crisp greens

Prepare the salad in a plastic container with a lid

and tuck it in a cooler to take on a picnic or to a BBQ

You can make it ahead, it stays delicious for several days

I made a batch and enjoyed nibbling on it for lunch last week

  6. What an interesting combo in the dressing. With the brown sugar and the sweetness of the grapes, the sour cream is a nice “cut” to it. This looks tasty and you’re right — every easy. Your recipes rock, Jenna! So do you!
