Grape Salad

We had an Easter potluck lunch at work today. Which is why I made the broccoli-cheese rice casserole. But I have to give you this recipe. It is perfect for a potluck, make it ahead of time and requires no heating.

First I have to tell you the source. Courtney is the cutest little thing at our office. She was the receptionist for about a year, now handles management support services. I don't think she is 5 feet tall in heels and at 7 months pregnant I doubt she weighs 100 pounds. And sweet as can be. She made the best Grape salad and here is the recipe in her words.

It is so easy…

1 bag of red seedless grapes
1 bag of green seedless grapes
1 8oz. thing of cream cheese (softened)
1 8oz. thing of sour cream
½ cup white sugar
1tsp vanilla
Brown sugar to taste
Pecans to taste

- wash grapes
- in a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, white sugar and vanilla until well blended
- pour over grapes and mix together ( I usually separate the grapes into 2 bowls and then pour the cream cheese mixture over each bowl, because there are so many grapes and it is hard to mix it all in one bowl )
- sprinkle and mix brown sugar to taste
- top with pecans or mix them in

I always use the fat free or low fat cream cheese and sour cream to make it a little healthier.

Note: a quilt for Courtney's baby shower will be started shortly.
