Creamy Grape Salad

I have this problem.  Whenever I go to a cookout, I head straight for the salads and by the time I finish those I totally don't have room left for a main course!  This salad would be the culprit of this at my last BBQ.  It is seriously so good, I can't stop eating it.  You'd never know there was sour cream in it, but it gives it a yummy tang that it needs to make it work. 

Once the brown sugar gets mixed in, it tastes very caramel-y and delicious.  A perfect treat for any get together.  (and just for reference, it is good for breakfast the next day as well :)

Creamy Grape Salad

1 lb firm green grapes
1 lb firm red grapes
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. sour cream (greek yogurt works here as well)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. pecans, chopped

Wash and dry grapes.

Beat cream cheese, sour cream, white sugar & vanilla with electric mixer. Coat grapes with cream cheese mixture and spread in 9 X 13 pan or large bowl. Refrigerate.

Just before serving, toss brown sugar & pecans and sprinkle over the top of grapes (I don't recommend adding nuts/brown sugar ahead of time...the nuts loose their crunch and the brown sugar dissolves into the cream cheese mixture)
