A friend of mine went to a retirement party the other day and called me to tell me about it. She raved over a grape salad that someone had brought and said it was a Paula Deen recipe. I told her I had a grape salad recipe better than any old Paula Deen recipe that a friend of mine had given me over 10 years ago. I emailed it to her and she said the only difference in them was that I layer mine in a trifle dish and Paula mixes her up. So, chicken/egg question: who had the recipe first, my friend, Linda or Paula Deen? Doesn’t matter, ’cause anyway you look at it, it’s yummy. Try it. You’ll be happy.
8 oz cream cheese
½ cup sugar
8 oz sour cream
Add first 3 ingredients together
4 cups of grapes (½ red, ½ green)
3/4 cup pecans (or so)
1/4 cup brown sugar
layer ½ of the grapes, ½ of the cream cheese mixture, some pecans, some brown sugar. Repeat the layers.
Sorry no picture this time. I haven’t made it in a while but am planning to this week.
