I'm not sure where this goes. This can be either a salad or dessert

1 8oz cream cheese
1 small sour cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
Put in grapes cut in half, as many as you want.
Mix together until smooth. Place in dish.(I use a glass deep dish pie plate)

11/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup brown sugar
Mix and place on top

Place in refrigerator and serve when needed.
You can use low fat cream cheese and sour cream.

That sounds really good, Elaine. I'll list it in the database as both a salad and a dessert. I listed several of my salads that way too.

A friend of mine gave me this recipe, and ever since, I've not used mayo in my waldorf salad. It's so much more refreshing on a hot day, and way better for you!

Waldorf Salad:


* 1 red apple, cored and chopped
* 1 Granny Smith apple, cored and chopped
* 1 cup seedless red grapes halved
* 1 cup seedless green grapes halved
* 2 stalks celery, chopped
* 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
* 2 (8 ounce) container nonfat lemon yogurt


1. In a large bowl, combine red apple, Granny Smith apple, Red Seedless Grapes, Green Seedless Grapes, celery, and walnuts. Mix in yogurt. Chill until ready to serve.
