Grape Salad

The first time that I had Grape Salad was when a young lady was trying to get her start in catering and brought lunch for several of us at the Clinic.  She provided chicken salad, Grape Salad, and strawberries.  I had never eaten grapes this way but went in search of a recipe, so that I could make it for my family.  Phillip would call this a girl recipe and I would tend to agree.  Girls do love their chicken salad and fruit.  I always enjoy meeting a girlfriend at The Basket Case in Dothan and enjoying chicken salad, fruit, and a poppyseed muffin with cream.

2 - 8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese, room temperature
16 oz. sour cream

Mix cream cheese and sour cream together.  Add granulated sugar, vanilla, and 1/4 cup pecans.  Fold in grapes.

1/2 cup brown sugar

Chop pecans finely and mix with sugar.  Sprinkle over top.

Refrigerate.
