A Salad with Grape Expectations

Janet Groene's
Creamy Grape Salad

   Rich and fruity, this salad makes the perfect lunch on a hot day. Make it more colorful by using two or three different grapes. Make it as lean as you like. Both cream cheese and sour cream come in full fat, "lite" and nonfat versions. Complete the meal with buttery bread sticks, an olive and balsamic vinegar dip for the bread and something chocolate for dessert. 

4 cups seedless grapes cut in half  

8-ounce package cream cheese
8-ounce tub of sour cream (1 cup)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup broken pecans or walnuts

Shredded lettuce

    Drain grapes. Soften cream cheese to room temperature or nuke it for a few seconds. Mix in sour cream, sugar and nuts. Fold in grapes and serve on beds of shredded lettuce. Sprinkle with more nuts if you wish. Serves 4 as a main dish salad.
