Grape Salad

Another wonderful contribution from Cathy.  I love this salad and it has been a hit at family parties and church functions.  It's very simple to make and everyone (except my husband because hates grapes) loves it!  Best when you make it a day ahead and refrigerate it, and easy to make in large quantities for parties!  Love it!

Grape Salad

4 lbs assorted seedless grapes, washed and taken off the stems (leave whole, do not cut in half)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz sour cream
1/4 c sugar
1-2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 oz chopped toasted pecans

In a mixer, or using hand mixer, blend together cream cheese and sour cream.  Add sugar and brown sugar, and then vanilla.  Stir in grapes in a large bowl, til well coated.  Just before serving add pecans and stir again.  Best made a few hours ahead so it can get all of that yummy flavor!

**Note** The recipe originally called for all green grapes, but we like the assorted grapes, red, dark purple or good.  Just make sure they are seedless grapes.
