Autumn Apple and Grape Medley



Sweet, crunchy apples and grapes in a sweet creamy sauce topped with crushed walnuts and brown sugar for a spectacular light fall dessert.

I'm usually pretty sad when summer comes to an end, but for some reason this year I feel different. I can't wait to go apple picking, pumpkin picking and all those wonderful things you can do in the fall! This dessert is the perfect end of summer treat; it's light and crisp, requires no cooking and is absolutely addicting!

You can easily double this recipe for a large party or halve it for less servings.

  9. Could I use a container of WW yogurt and some ff cream cheese and lower the points that way? If so would it be only 3?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Bella, they will love it!

    Sarah, I'm not sure how that would change the points. You'll have to check on recipe builder.

  14. I wonder if you could make this with a Marzetti cream cheese fruit dip rather than the yogurt and sweetener. It probably mimics the taste and it's about 3 points for 2 tablespoons. I am going to definitely make an apple and grape salad today based on seeing this! I have pecans, so will use them instead of walnuts, but I can almost taste the blend of fruits now! Thanks for the idea :)

  21. Does anyone know how this holds up in the fridge overnight? I'm thinking of making it tonight for a party tomorrow night but I don't want it to get mushy.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think it would hold up ok. Put the topping on tomorrow.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This looks awesome! If I sub in some light sour cream for the yogurt I think I have all the ingredients, assuming candied walnuts will also work as a sub for the topping. Grapes are so cheap right now.

    You hear this all the time, but I love your site. I'm not on a diet per se, but it feels good to eat healthy delicious food, at least most of the time!

  31. I made this earlier this week. I really enjoyed it and limited myself to 1/2 cup for a side for my lunches limiting the points that way. Thank you!

  36. Made this a week or so ago and my son and husband went nuts for it...according to my hubby...this shit is goood!!!!! make it again lol.

  37. Would it be okay to freeze this in individual bowls? It is just my husband and I living in our apartment, and I believe I'd be the only one eating it, so I want to put it in individual bowls, and throw it in the freezer, then I can grab it for my lunch at work, then by lunch, it would be thawed out, however, I'd hate to do this, and the apples or grapes get "mushy" or gross. Thanks

  39. I made these last week and they were so delish. It was hard not to eat the whole thing. My kids weren't crazy about it but my husband and I loved it and it satisfied my sweet tooth.

  41. Brilliant way to sneak yogurt past a person who refuses to eat it!

  42. I used to make this with Miracle Whip & Cool Whip. Thanks for a much healthier version!

  43. I made this for dessert last night, topped with pecans, and substituting maple syrup for the brown sugar/agave. It was totally delicious and I was amazed that my son ate a good sized helping. He is generally very fussy!

  44. I made this tonight and it was delicious! I didn't have any grapes, so I used all apples and added some cinnamon to the walnut/brown sugar mixture. Yum!

  45. Just ran across this recipe on Pinterest - I make a very similar version using a package of lemon yogurt and a vanilla yogurt, sans cream cheese. So incredibly refreshing!

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is wonderful!! I will be making this again for sure.
