I wasn’t going to post any “bad for you” recipes; but I was looking through my recipe index and came across this recipe. My Grandma used to make it for us when we were kids. The ingredients sound a little strange; but give it a chance and you’ll be asked to make it again and again!
I have over the years tried to “lighten” it up by using low fat cream cheese, low fat sour cream and sugar substitutes like Splenda in place of the brown and white sugar. I will post the original recipe the way Grandma made it and you can decide which way you prefer to make it! I am heading to Sunflower and buying seedless grapes as they are 99 cents a pound this week! This salad will be a hit on the Superbowl spread!
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
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.
Be sure to bring copies of the recipe to your Superbowl party…you will be asked for the recipe!
