Gooey Grape Salad/Dessert

This is a healthier substitute for a sweeter dessert and very delicious.  When grapes are on sale, this is the dish to make.  It's a very attractive presentation for company also.


5 cups washed seedless grapes -
(red, green, or a mixture)
1 - 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
2 cups sour cream
1/3 cup white sugar
2 T. brown sugar
1/4 - 1/2 cup chopped/toasted pecans

Mix cream cheese until smooth - blend in sour cream and white sugar.  Stir in grapes to coat and pour into 2 qt. dish. Sprinkle brown sugar over top - then pecans.  Cover and refrigerate for atleast 2 hours before serving.

I am amazed at how well this keeps in the refrigerator - up to a week.  I use reduced-fat cream cheese and sour cream, and substitute Splenda for the white sugar.
