Grape Salad

August 16, 2011

So, this past weekend was my mom’s birthday (Happy Birthday again, Mom! :), and as we were having a little birthday party I wanted to find a new yummy recipe. And, boy, did I find one. Grape salad. I’ve never heard of it before. Am I missing something? Has anyone else heard of a “grape salad” before? Maybe I’ve just been living under a rock all this time.

I stumbled across this Grape Salad recipe on Food.com. There are a ton of yummy recipes there. There’s a really yummy Caramel Popcorn recipe that I LOVE. I haven’t used it in forever because it’s really, really bad for you. And the No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies. Oh, my gosh. I need to stop looking at my online cookbook from there. Yum! I’ve said “yummy” a lot in this post. Oops.

So, this Grape Salad. Yummy green and purple grapes. Cream cheese. Sour cream. Pecans and brown sugar. You must try this!
