One of my all time favorite summer recipes is Grape Salad. This quick and easy dish can be served as a refreshing sweet side dish or take the place of a dessert. Enjoy!
2lbs seedless green grapes
2lbs seedless red grapes
8oz cream cheese (softened)
8oz sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup pecans (chopped)
Stem and wash all grapes, then lay them in a single layer on a towel to dry.
In a separate bowl combine cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla and combine until well blended.
Pour dry grapes into a 9×13 pan and arrange to make a “flat” top surface.
Top grapes with cream cheese mixture.
Sprinkle the brown sugar over the cream cheese mixture, and top with the chopped pecans.
Chill for at least 2-3 hours before serving, best if chilled overnight.
I imagine the cream cheese mixture could also be served as a fruit dip for various cut fruits, but I haven’t tried that yet. Hope you enjoy this as much as I have! 🙂
My creative activity find as of late is spin art. I’ve been scoping out garage sales and resale stores for an inexpensive salad spinner to take advantage of this great activity. What fun have you enjoyed?
