the first of two tasty spring salads...

i first had this salad at a family dinner when my sister-in-law brought it. it didn't have the topping then, but i have made it with & without & prefer it with! i love the difference in textures & flavors. it is perfect for any of your spring & summer eats!


{Markae’s Fresh Grape Salad}

2 lbs. green grapes

2 lbs. red grapes

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

8 oz. sour cream

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup brown sugar

Wash & pat dry grapes. Arrange in a bowl & stir until evenly mixed in colors. In an other bowl, with an electric mixer, beat together cream cheese, sour cream, sugar & vanilla. Beat until smooth. Pour over grapes, stir together. Refrigerate overnight.

In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar & pecans. Transfer grapes mix to a serving dish & sprinkle with sugar & nut mix. Return to fridge until ready to serve. Serve chilled.
