All of the other food blogs I follow are featuring wonderful fall recipes like hearty soups and pumpkin everything, but I have been meaning to share this great “salad” since we had it over the Labor Day weekend.
It’s an easy, delicious make-ahead “salad” that is always popular and I’m sure if you have ever been to a potluck dinner you have seen it before. My sister Nancy first brought this “salad” to a birthday party for my daughter several years ago and I have been making it ever since.
I’m actually not sure why it’s called a “salad” because it includes sour cream, sugar and cream cheese, but I’m more than willing to go along with it in the name of “health” especially since it also has red and green grapes!
To prepare, first gather all of your ingredients which are: red and green grapes, cream cheese, sour cream, granulated and brown sugar, vanilla extract and toasted pecans.
Wash and dry the grapes and put into a large bowl. In another bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, sour cream, granulated sugar and vanilla and mix well with an electric mixer.
Pour this mixture over the grapes and mix well.
Mix the brown sugar and toasted pecans and sprinkle evenly over the top.
