Blue Ribbon Recipe
If you love grapes and fruit salad, then you need to try this grape salad. The grapes stay firm and are coated in a slightly sweet sauce. We love the combination of very sweet red grapes and slightly tart green grapes. It adds a delicious contrast in flavors. Topping with brown sugar adds almost a caramel flavor to the grape salad. A sprinkle of pecans gives the salad a nice crunch. Putting this in a 9x13 dish ensures every serving has a bit of the topping. Great for a barbecue or a spring or summer gathering.

For step 4, we ended up tossing the grapes in the cream cheese sauce and then pouring it into the bowl to ensure all the grapes were covered.
1Wash grapes and allow them to dry. Remove grapes from the stems.
2Blend together the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, and vanilla extract.
3Spread the grapes in a large flat pan (9x13). Spread the cream cheese mixture over the grapes all the way to the sides.
4Top with the pecans and brown sugar just before serving. Enjoy!
