Cream Cheese Pecan Grape Salad

Grape Salad Recipe

I just love these desserts that masquerade as "salads" -- kind of like my cranberry salad recipe. And like the cranberry salad, you'll find sour cream and cream cheese play a big role in this dish.

No, this is definitely not diet food.

Although I'm guessing you could easily lighten it up a bit by substituting plain yogurt and Neufchâtel, along with using a lighter hand on the sugar and nuts.

But I went full fat, full sugar with everything... and served myself a big bowl for breakfast -- because I'm the mommy and I'm allowed to do that. And I loved. every. bite.

I prefer to toast my pecans for this recipe, but it's still very tasty without this additional step.

This is a great dish for potlucks and cookouts. It's easy to make, travels well, and it's slightly unusual but delicious!
