This is one of the easiest desserts you will ever make, and so delicious. My first experience with grape salad was when my sister-in-law made it for a family gathering, and I was hooked. She made it with red grapes, and I am definitely a green grape gal, so this recipe calls for green grapes. Whatever your preference, it is good stuff. After playing around with several variations of different recipes, this is my go-to recipe. I’ve made it for family, friends, and Bible studies, and everyone loves it, young and old.
3 lbs green seedless grapes
8 oz container light cream cheese
8 oz container light sour cream
1/2 c sugar
3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 c light brown sugar
1/2 c pecan pieces
Place grapes in a colander and rinse well. Empty into a bowl lined with paper towels to absorb excess water.
Empty the containers of light sour cream and light cream cheese into a mixing bowl. Add the white sugar and vanilla. Mix until combined and smooth. (hand mix or use a mixer)
Add grapes into the mixing bowl and fold until grapes are coated.
Transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pecans.
Add more grapes if you prefer a lighter coating.
Walnuts are also good on this!
