Rosie Makes A Grape Salad.

I love fruit salads and this delectable grape salad really hit the spot.
It's green and red seedless grapes
coated with a cream cheese and sour cream dressing
that's both sweet and tart.
I only used half the dressing for a pound of grapes,
saving the remaining half for "the best cheesecake you've ever made,"
according to Mr. Hawthorne.
And I've made a lot of cheesecakes in my time.
That recipe will be posted soon,
but for now, enjoy the grape salad.

Rosie's Grape Salad
4 oz. cream cheese (1/2 stick), softened
1/4 cup sour cream
2 TB sugar
1 TB vanilla
Combine all ingredients.
Mix well.

Using 1/2 of the above mixture,
add in 1 lb. red and green seedless grapes,
stirring to coat grapes.

Leave the grapes whole.
Slicing would make this too watery.

Sprinkle 2 TB brown sugar,
1/2 cup cup coconut,
and 1/2 cup chopped pecans
over grape mixture.

You could totally add some sliced apple in here
to give it some added crunch
and I'd be quite happy.

This is soooo gooooood.
It's one of those dishes where I keep scooping
spoonful after spoonful
because I don't want to miss out on any flavors in there.
I can't get enough tastes or textures.
