Anywho, mom was talking about this grape salad recipe that used to be quite popular with the pitch-in dinner crowd at her church, and I thought it might could be a nice change from my more usual fruit salad and lemon curd sauce.
•6 to 8 cups seedless green grapes
•20 oz can pineapple tidbits packed in juice (drained)
•8 oz cream cheese, softened
•8 oz sour cream
•1/4 cup sugar
•1 tsp vanilla
•2 tbsp brown sugar
•Freshly ground Tellicherry pepper*
•Nuts, for topping (optional)
*Three or four turns of the pepper mill.
Mix the cream cheese together with the sour cream, sugar, vanilla, and brown sugar in a bowl. Give it a taste, then go ahead and add that black pepper, you’ll be glad you did.
Simple, kid friendly fruit salad in next to no time.
Perfect for those pitch-in dinners.
