Green Grape Salad

Standard

revised25

The beauty of this recipe is in its simplicity. Green grapes, pecan pieces and a delicious dressing — perfect for a brunch or light supper. I am always looking for ways to use leftovers, and I took the opportunity to substitute some Triple Crème Cheese (super rich & creamy) for the cream cheese in this recipe. I think this is something that I might make to take along to my next pot-luck. Served here with Ham & Cheese Breakfast Quiche.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds seedless green grapes
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Directions

  1. Wash and dry grapes. In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla. Add grapes and mix until evenly incorporated. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pecans, mix again and refrigerate until serving.

I have made some real efforts in the kitchen lately, and I blog in order to document and motivate myself to: 1.) fully use all of the fresh ingredients in my kitchen and 2.) cook healthy, creative meals.
