Grape Salad
Yields:  12 servings

4 pounds seedless grapes (red and green)
½ cup sugar
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, grated
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
8 oz sour cream

¼ cup brown sugar
2 cups chopped pecans

Slice grapes in half.  In a large mixing bowl combine sugar; softened cream cheese and sour cream.  Using electric mixer cream ingredients.  Mixture will still have some small lumps.  Once mixed, add grape halves and cheddar cheese. Stir by hand until well blended.  Refrigerate over night.  Just before serving add pecans and brown sugar mixture. 

Yield:  12 to 14 servings
Ease of Preparation:  easy

Notes from Paula’s test Kitchen:  Refrigerating 4 hours gave us the same flavor.  We toasted the chopped pecans for bigger flavor and left some grapes whole for a more attractive appearance.

It's very sad that people have to be mean-spirited. If you don't like the recipe, or think it has too much sugar, fat, or whatever, then DON"T make the recipe! Or, you can modify it for YOUR use. All things in moderation.

Wonderful salad, Paula! Don't listen to Maliene. She drives over the speed limit.

Love your recipes, your store, and love The Lady an Son resturant.and Uncle Bubbas Seafood House. The ones that are saying these bad things about you recipes, are the fast food queens. All things in moderation.

A FULL half of a cup of SUGAR! Cheese, cheese and sour cream! Paula Dean has diabetes and we are still viewing recipes loaded with ingredients which will kill too many people. Fix this and die, sucker!

Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You Mary Ann

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?
