Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 pounds seedless red grapes
  • 2 pounds seedless green grapes
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans

Directions

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until blended. Add grapes and toss to coat.
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.

    "Had this salad a number of years ago at a funeral. Everybody raved about it. Didn't really have a recipe per se so I winged it and it turned out great. After reading some of these reviews, it's always left up to a person's personal tastes. The dressing is supposed to be a bit thick so it sticks to the grapes and doesn't leave a runny mess at the bottom. Makes for a great salad in the summer on a hot day."

    "This grape salad was fabulous! It is fast, uses few ingredients and a great taste. I made it the night before and it held up well. I used sour cream and it gave it a tangy flavor. I will make it again."
