My son came home from DC this last weekend and we had a bit of a “family reunion”. As you know with reunions everyone brings a dish they have been dying to try. This is what happened with the Grape Salad my mom brought. My mom, who is 80 years young, tries to understand the whole low fat lifestyle way of thinking but ….well…..not so much. Her comment to me as she was handing me the recipe “here is the way I make it, now go fix it”. Gotta love mom! The salad was very refreshing and the simple fixes that I made didn’t really change a think except lower the fat content. My two granddaughters loved this salad but then again, who doesn’t like grapes! Enjoy 🙂 Comments/questions email@example.com
Wash and dry 2 pounds of each red and green seedless grapes. Place in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 8 oz of no fat cream cheese and 1 cup of no fat sour cream. mix together until well blended. Add 1 tsp. of vanilla. Take mixture and fold in with grapes.
This salad works best to spread it out in a 9 x 9 baking dish or a larger dish, not a bowl. You can sprinkle with some chopped pecans (which my mom did) . The salad only will keep 1 day but if your family likes it as much as ours did, no worries because it will not last!
