dash of vanilla extract
1 cup pecans ground
1 cup brown sugar

Wash grapes and remove from stems.
Combine cream cheese, yogurt honey and vanilla in a large bowel, stir until smooth. Mix in grapes and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Combine pecans and brown sugar. Sprinkle over the grape mixture just before serving.

    My MIL makes a version with I swear double the sweetener in it, and while everyone else raves how delish it is, i find it too sickeningly sweet, prefer to let the grapes natural flavor take front and center :)

    Hey, I've made this 5 times. The first time with brown sugar and cream cheese. The rest without either. At first i rebelled at having to remove all the grapes from the stems, but now I even slice the grapes in half. However, I do add cinnamon and nutmeg. Everyone has loved both recipes.

    If I'm making it just for me, as opposed for a company dish or a covered dish, I leave out the pecans and have them on the side if I'm not using them somewhere else that day. I even eat this salad for breakfast. I'd think it would taste good with a little ginger grated into it, but haven't tried that.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe!!

    We have a friend at church who brings something like this all the time. Everybody loves it. and it does seem to be a toss up as to whether it should be on the dessert table or the salad table!

    The 1 cup of brown sugar in the topping sounds like a lot but mixed with the pecans, then sprinkled over the whole salad it isn't that bad. You can use a little less if you like things less sweet but it does off set the tartness of the yogurt.

    Thanks for this recipe!! I'm going to take it to a Relay for Life covered dish picnic tomorrow. I'll have to get up early to go get the grapes, but I have everything else. We always have cards with the Recipe name and ingredients. I'm going to call it Sharjopaul's Grape Salad. I bet they'll love it and it will be good for them.

    Oh. . . what do you think about 1/2 cup brown sugar? Seems like a lot, but I can't picture 4 pounds of grapes either. emoticon
