  1. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to have it for the birthday brunch we had this morning! Everyone loved it! I made some more so I could have it for lunches this week! Thanks for the delicious recipe!

  2. Can you substitute red grapes for the green grapes?

  3. This is a perfect recipe for those grapes that are a little too sour and no one wants to eat them!  We always use up our grapes like this!  
    The next day it might be a little bit runny, but add a touch more yogurt amd stir it well.
    We used whipped cream spread for easier stirring and I think a few less calories.  Or you can use the flavored spreads, like pecan and maple.  So yummy!

  4. made this today! so good! thank you! any ideas for nut allergies? pretzels maybe?

  5. Could it be done without the cream cheese? Need meals and snacks that are as low in fat as possible, so if I can take out the cream cheese, would be better.

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

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

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

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

  11. Just made this and it was wonderful! I am sure the kids will even like it.

  12. 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.

  13. just made this and it was soooooo good! its not fall, but i would eat this anytime! great!

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Made this for a pre-wedding snack over the weekend for my cousins wedding, it was a hit!! I made it again today for my husband and he loved it too! Thanks for another great recipe!

  17. Gina, do you know what the carbs would be if I left off the topping? My DH has to watch carbs, but he'd love this dessert-thanks!

  18. Made this and it didn't last very long.It's sooo good. My husband loved it.

  19. 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!

  20. I made this on Sunday and I love it!

  21. I'm so glad you all like it!!!

  22. This is amazing. Made it last night and love it!

  23. Had this at a brunch yesterday- so yummy I couldn't believe it was healthy!

  24. What a healthy and tasty salad! So simple but so full of flavors. Love your recipe!

  25. Me and my husband really enjoyed this. Thank you!

  26. I'm sure it will be great Anna!

  27. 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!

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

  29. 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.

  30. I'm not surprised!! 🙂

  31. Made this for a potluck and came home with a clean dish! Wonderful!

  32. Thanks for the pin!!

  33. This looks GREAT and a perfect dish I can bring to my moms group next week! I pinned it on pintrest too! 🙂 Thanks so much!

  34. That is a perfect healthy fall recipe; love it will sure try it.

  35. oh my. this looks like the best thing i've ever seen. great post, love. Would love if you'd check out my tribute to Rachel Zoe in honor of tonight's premier. xoxo

  36. Yum! This looks so good 🙂 I will be trying this tomorrow for breakfast

  37. OMG!! I just made this…it was so good- that is my new breakfast! I did not have any walnuts so I used just a bit of peanut butter granola. YUM

  38. 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 🙂

  39. Awesome anonymous!

    Erika – it's seriously delicious!

  40. This is very different – I've never seen anything like this! That being said, it looks delicious! 🙂

  41. I just discovered your blog and have literally stayed up all night browsing and printing out recipes. you are my favorite person in the world right now. these all look so delicious and healthy. i have been looking for a website like this forever. and now…i will love you forever. ha. keep up the good work!!!!

  42. Bella, they will love it!

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

  43. 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?

  44. looks great, can't wait to try it!! and thanks Gina for listing the amount of sodium in your recipes, it is greatly appreciated and very helpful! Sincerely, Rose

  45. if only mine would turn out as lovely looking 🙂

  46. Mmmm love this! I'm super excited for fall this year too. Weird!

  47. Yum Gina this sounds and looks amazing….I am having a week at the beach next week and we are all on a diet. I have been looking for sweet things that would work and I do believe this will do it. As always thanks so much.

  48. You'll be pleasantly surprised!

  49. I was looking for a new way to eat grapes the other day and this dish is the perfect way to fulfill that.

  50. This looks great for a snack, breakfast or lunch! 🙂 yumm
