When I think of summer, I think of my favorite things – spending time with family and friends, being outside and making my favorite summertime recipes!

I love eating fruit during the summer months because it’s so refreshing! Whether it’s fresh fruit from the farmer’s market or fruit that’s chopped up and put into a fruit salad, if it’s put in front of me, I’ll eat it!

I especially love grape salad! My grandma used to make this recipe all the time when I was younger! The first time I tried it, I was hooked. The recipe is super easy and it doesn’t require a lot of ingredients. In fact, you could make this recipe in a matter of minutes.

Today I’m going to share this quick and easy recipe using Dean's® DairyPure® Sour Cream so that you can make it for your next family get together or for a potluck with friends.
