Sweet Grape Salad {Eating the Alphabet Series}

Last month I didn't participate in the Eating the Alphabet challenge but I'm back, baby. 














Ok, ok so I'm a little late posting. But thank goodness they leave those linkies open for a few days for slackers like myself  :)

For this challenge, we have to make a recipe using a fruit or vegetable (or grains or beans) that starts with a specific letter. This month we had the letters G or H. I decided on g for GRAPE!

I decided to go with this grape salad that I saw on Cassie's blog, and she got it from here, where I was able to scale down the measurements and figure out a good amount for us, not for a potluck or party.

























Sweet Grape Salad
slightly adapted from Cassie Craves, originally from food.com
  • 1/2 lb red seedless grapes
  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 oz sour cream
  • 1/8 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp pecan pieces
Mix first 5 ingredients together. Sprinkle with brown sugar and pecan pieces. Refrigerate overnight. Toss and serve cold.

I love simple and easy. And it helps that this was a tasty treat. 

I like to think that it is a bit healthy because of the grapes. But I'm pretty sure the 2 creams, 2 sugars, and nuts are killing that idea.

Oh well, I'll take this over healthy any day!

Yay for grape salad! I don't htink I've ever had it but I know I'd love the combo of sweet grapes with tangy cream cheese and sour cream. YUM!

If it has grapes, it counts as fruits/veggies in my book, I don't care if it has 5 gallons of ice cream on top!
