Just Jules Famous Grape Salad

The recipe isn't mine by any means, I just happen to make it upon request quite a bit and get asked for the recipe almost once a month.

This is a great dessert type salad. Red,black and green grapes in a sweet dressing with a brown sugar and nut crumble topping. Really simple to make and a guaranteed hit at parties. This is a must have dish for Easter or spring celebrations.

Some of the ingredients may sound odd but don't let that turn you off!

2lbs green seedless grapes
2 lbs red seedless grapes
8 ounces sour cream
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, to taste
1 cup brown sugar, packed, to taste
1 cup crushed pecans, to taste
Wash and stem grapes.
Set aside.
Mix sour cream, cream cheese, white sugar and vanilla by hand until blended.
Stir grapes into mixture, and pour in large serving bowl.
For topping: Combine brown sugar, and crushed pecans.
Sprinkle over top of grapes to cover completely.
Chill overnight.
