Recipe: Creamy Grape Salad

First off, let me say, this picture does not do this dish any favors.  But let me tell you, this salad is wonderful and creamy and so perfectly cold and delicious on a hot summer day.  My family recently got together to celebrate some June birthdays and I wanted to make a dish that we have not had before.  I am so glad that I made this salad as I will be making it often in the future especially during these hot Texas summer months.  The recipe calls for whole grapes, but I think the next time I make it, I will halve the grapes.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

Creamy Grape Salad

1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
4 lbs seedless grapes, washed and dry

In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until smooth.  Add grapes and stir gently making sure to coat all the grapes.  Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.  Right before serving, add chopped walnuts.
