grape salad–don’t be fooled!

it may not look that good, but again, this is one of our family’s favorite recipes!!!  My friends, the Porters brought this to a potluck and it was a HIT….of course I pilfered the recipe:).  That tends to be my style….I find something I like and either beg, borrow or steal (really–more on that the closer it gets to the Holidays)…or if those methods don’t work, i try to recreate it.  I was blessed this time…they handed it over with out too much force….just a promise for cinnamon rolls.  I made this once and now it is a regular….well, as regular as grapes on sale is…..which right now, they are plenty…so, here is the recipe:

Grape Salad

  • 1 lb green grapes
  • 1 lb red grapes
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Cup brown sugar–this is a perfect place to substitute sucanat.  PLUS–I never use all this.
  • ¾ cup chopped and toasted pecans

Combine cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla and ¾ C. of brown sugar.  Carefully stir in grapes.  Before serving top with remaining brown sugar and pecans.
