Grape Salad with Pretzel Topping (Dairy, Egg, and Nut-Free!)


Oh, this recipe!  It was one of my favorites before food allergies came into the picture.  My mom has made it for years and it’s always a hit.  It’s one of those recipes that has been handed down and passed around, so I have no idea who to give credit to for the original recipe (topped with crumbled Butterfingers), but here’s my dairy-free version.  The dairy-free Tofutti Sour Cream and Cream Cheese give these grapes a creamy balance to the grapes sweetness.  Mother’s Day is just 11 days away, and this would be the perfect addition to a home cooked meal for the mom in your life.

Not sure what else you’ll be serving for a Mother’s Day dinner?  Try Roasted Garlic Lemon Chicken with Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts, my Homemade Bread (easier than you think!), this Grape Salad, and Peach Cobbler for dessert!
