    Grape Salad

    3 cups grapes, 1 cup sour cream, 8 oz cream cheese softened, 1 cup sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 1/2 cup pecans chopped.

    Mix the sour cream, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. Cream with a mixer until smooth. Mix in the grapes by hand. Toast the pecans in a pan on the stove. When the pecans are toasted, add the brown sugar to the pan and remove the pan from the stove. Allow the brown sugar to heat thoroughly in the pan off the burner. cool. Top the grapes with the brown sugar mixture, do not stir.

    I usually don't use all the sour cream misture since it seems to make too much. The extra is great as a fruit dip.

    This is a site I am receiving a daily newsletter from. They have many recipes and also if you type in Grape Salad in the search block, you will be directed to the recipe. Many of the QB members might be interested in this site. WARNING it is addictive like this site.

    I'll also send the recipe in another reply

    This is the Grape Salad Recipe from Nancy'sKitchen.com

    Grape Salad

    3 lbs seedless grapes (red or green or a combination)
    1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar (adjust to taste)
    8 oz sour cream
    8 oz cream cheese (softened)
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
    1/2 - 1 cup light brown sugar (adjust to taste)

    Wash and stem grapes; drain. In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, sour cream, cream cheese, and vanilla till smooth. Pour over grapes; mix till thoroughly combined. In separate bowl, mix nuts and brown sugar together. (I use the maximum amount of brown sugar, because I love the mix of the flavor with the sweet/sour of the grapes.) Pour grape mixture into serving dish; sprinkle top with sugar and nut mixture. Chill and serve. This recipe makes a very large portion (suitable for a family gathering of 20 or possibly more, depending on appetites). Recipe may be halved. Keeps well in refrigerator for several days (if it lasts that long).

    shawnemily, I see on your avitar you're from Illion. Is there a Remington arms museum in your town, or near your town?? I went to an interesting museum with my husband over 20 years ago, and when I tell people I cant remember the name of the town where the museum is.

    I'm not into guns, but I love history and this place has arms going back to at least the 1200s. And, a representative piece for everything Remington ever made. (Im saying Remington, but now I wonder if it was Winchester -Im old! lol)

    The day we happened in, no one else was there except a guard - it was eerie wandering around a place filled with weapons and we were the only 2 there sharet
