  • Creamy Grape Salad, by

    Great salad for a potluck
    1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
    1 cup sour cream
    1/3 cup sugar
    2 teas. vanilla
    2 pounds seedless red grapes
    2 pounds seedless green grapes
    4 Tablespoons brown sugar
    5 T. chopped pecans, plus a few for garnish on top
    ( I used at least 1/2 cup of chopped pecans in the salad, because I thought it needed it.)

    1. In a medium mixing bowl beat the cream cheese (which I softened in the microwave for 25 seconds on high), sour cream, sugar and vanilla with a hand mixer until blended.
    2. Add the grapes, stirring gently until coated. I hadn't weighed my grapes, so just added until it looked like enough. Cover and chill till serving.
    3. Just before serving, add brown sugar and pecans and mix in. \
    4. Sprinkle with some extra chopped pecans on top and serve.

    I love grape salad there is something about the brown sugar that just enhances the flavor.
    Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to God

      I make this for church from time to time. Yes, there is something about that brown sugar. Lovely.

        I have some friends coming for dinner tomorrow and think I will make it again, while I still have grapes in the refrigerator.
        The birds cleaned them off the clusters right on the vine!
