Creamy Brown Sugar Grape Salad

I must say I just now have made this glorious salad.  I have been seeing it on the social media sites for several years and just never got around to making it.  

Now I make it all the time.  It is fabulous.  I can't get enough of it.  My husband loves it, my grands love it, everywhere I take it they love it.  


I use equal amounts of seedless green grapes and red grapes.  There is a sweet-tart taste with the grapes and the cream cheese and yogurt in the dressing.  You can use sour cream, but I prefer the yogurt.  

The sprinkle of brown sugar and chopped pecans can be added to individual servings for those of you who are not a fan of the brown sugar or pecans.  

Some like to fold the brown sugar, and chopped pecans in a let it sit in the refrigerator an hour or two before serving, so the brown sugar has some time to melt.

We like it all folded in together just before serving.  

This would be a great salad to make for your Thanksgiving feast.  We have it on the menu!

I hope you will give this salad a try and make it to your liking.  That is what is so fabulous about this recipe.  Enjoy!
