  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until blended. Add grapes and toss to coat.
  2. Transfer to a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pecans just before serving. Yield: 21-24 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • In many recipes, thick and tangy Greek yogurt stands in beautifully for sour cream and lightens things up.
  • Mix in chopped candy bars. Crunchy Snickers and Heath bars play particularly well with the juicy grapes.

    "This is an absolutely fabulous salad. I'm guessing I've made this at least a dozen times since I got the recipe the summer of 2016. Just for fun the other day, I added some blueberries and they were so good in there! I use it as a dessert when I'm craving something sweet. I mix at least a cup or so of chopped walnuts or pecans in instead of sprinkling over the top, and I didn't care so much for the brown sugar, so don't use it at all. This is my favorite salad by far. Wish I could give it ten stars."

    "This is perfect for an office potluck or anytime you need to bring a quick treat to a party (the green grapes are perfect for Christmas)! So delicious and addicting! Note: I left off the brown sugar - was already sweet enough for me."

    "I make this recipe but I put it in a 9x13 pan and put the brown sugar and pecans over the top right away. I think it is better made the day before serving."
