With all the taste talk, we must not forget that this my dear is also a very healthy preparation with a multitude of nutrients filling up your belly with each bite! So, do not wait and try it out to enjoy an incredible preparation, which is a ‘must cook’ in my recipe itinerary!
Put walnuts in a microwave safe dish and microwave the nuts for about 1 minute. Cool the nuts to room temperature. Meanwhile, in a bowl whisk the cream cheese, sour cream, powdered white sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth in consistency and well blended. Now, add the brown sugar granules, sliced basil leaves, mint leaves and whisk everything well until well combined.
Add the red and green grapes to the salad dressing and mix everything well until the dressing coats the grape well. Cover the salad in bowl with a cling film and chill the salad for at least 30 minutes. Transfer the chilled salad in to the serving bowl, top the salad with walnuts and chill again for about 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Make sure you mix the ingredients well to coat all the grapes nicely with the salad dressing. Make sure you chill the salad at least for 30 minutes before topping or stirring in the walnuts. This salad tastes best when served chilled. So, you may prepare it even a day before and let it chill over night before serving the next day. If you are running short of time, you may also chill the salad dressing separately for about 10 minutes in the freezer before preparing the salad.
