Are you looking for the perfect warm-weather side dish? This sweet, cool, refreshing, and healthy 3-Ingredient Grape Salad is just the answer! Plus, it’s ready in just 5 minutes!

A quick and easy 3-ingredient Grape Salad is a healthy side dish for summer!

Grapes are definitely one of the favorite fruits in our house. I can’t even tell you how many pounds we go through each week! Casey and I especially love to stir grapes into our vanilla yogurt for breakfast in the morning. Something about the creamy yogurt mixed with the sweet, slightly-tart, and juicy red grapes is really a treat. It’s healthy, but it tastes like dessert!

That tasty breakfast is actually what inspired my Grape Salad, which can be served for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, or even for dessert.

Oh, my friend. You’re never going to believe just how easy this is…

Let’s start with the obvious ingredient: grapes! But not just any grapes. RED grapes are the strong favorite here — for taste and for texture. Just trust me.

This healthy 3-Ingredient Grape Salad is perfect for summer picnics, cookouts, and potlucks. Best of all, you can stir it together in about 5 minutes!


  • 2 cups halved red grapes (about 12 ounces)
  • 1 (5.3 ounce) container Greek-style vanilla yogurt
  • ½ cup whipped topping (such as Cool Whip) thawed
  • Optional Garnish: chopped, toasted pecans


  • Place grapes in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • Place yogurt in a separate bowl and gently fold in the whipped topping.
  • Add the yogurt mixture to the grapes and stir until grapes are coated.
  • Refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
  • If using the pecans as a garnish, stir into the salad just before serving.


This salad yields 4 small servings of approximately 1/2 cup per serving. If you're feeding a larger family or serving a big crowd at a party, you will need to double, triple, or quadruple the ingredients to suit the size of your audience. It's delicious, and it disappears fast, so make plenty!
