Creamy Grape Dessert


This recipe calls for simple ingredients and is delicious and highly addictive. The tartness of the grapes pairs wonderfully with the sweet dressing and topping.

This takes no time to throw together, easily doubles for more people and is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser!

Unsurprisingly, the next time I make this I will double the topping as it was absolutely divine.

You have to try it this weekend. Or just make it for breakfast.

  20. What a unique, awesome idea!! I love grapes and often freeze them for a snack or add them to chicken salad, but I'd never think to make a whole dessert of them. I love it!
