Grape Salad With Brown Sugar Pecan Topping

A delicious fruit salad that can be used for a party, baby or wedding shower, holiday meal or any get together.  It makes a lot.  This would be even be appropriate for a tail gate party, if kept chilled.


  • 4 pounds of seedless grapes, red and green mixture or whatever combination you desire, washed and drained
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans, or whatever other nut you desire, such as walnuts, almonds, etc.

In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and chopped pecans and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, sugar, sour cream and vanilla until blended.  I used an electric hand mixer.  Stir in grapes.  Cover with the topping and chill for at least 2 hours.

Note:  I didn't use all the topping.  It makes a lot and you may want to only make half of the recipe for the topping.
