Grape Salad with Yogurt and Cream Cheese Topping Recipe

This refreshing grape salad combines the natural sweetness of red and green grapes with a creamy yogurt and cream cheese dressing, topped with a crunchy walnut, oats, and brown sugar mix. It’s perfect as a dessert or a sweet side dish for brunches and picnics. Here’s how to make it:


For the Salad:

  • 250 g seedless green grapes
  • 250 g seedless red grapes
  • 200 g Greek yogurt
  • 175 g cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp honey

For the Topping:

  • 40 g walnuts, chopped
  • 20 g rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar


  1. Prepare the Grapes:
    • Wash the red and green grapes thoroughly and pat them dry. If the grapes are large, you might want to cut them in half to make the salad easier to eat.
  2. Make the Dressing:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, softened cream cheese, vanilla extract, lemon zest, lemon juice, and honey. Whisk together until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Mix the Salad:
    • Place the grapes in a large bowl. Pour the creamy dressing over the grapes and gently toss to ensure all the grapes are evenly coated with the dressing.
  4. Prepare the Topping:
    • In a separate small bowl, mix together the chopped walnuts, rolled oats, and brown sugar. This will add a delightful crunch and a hint of sweetness to the top of the salad.
  5. Assemble the Salad:
    • Transfer the dressed grapes into a serving bowl. Sprinkle the walnut and oat topping evenly over the grapes.
  6. Chill and Serve:
    • Refrigerate the salad for at least 30 minutes before serving. This allows the flavors to meld together and the topping to soften slightly, creating a pleasant texture contrast.


  • Variations: You can add other fruits like sliced strawberries or blueberries for additional color and flavor.
  • Serving Options: This grape salad can be served as a dessert or a side dish. It’s especially good for summer gatherings or as a refreshing addition to a brunch menu.
  • Make Ahead: This salad can be prepared a few hours in advance. Add the topping just before serving to maintain its crunchiness.
