Crunchy Grape Salad

This is a nice side dish that is easy to make and can be made a day ahead of time.
If you can find small sized grapes in red and green use those so the grapes won't be too big.  I have had it before with the grapes cut but this recipe says not to cut them.
This was the time consuming part.  Wash the grapes then take them all off the stems.  Make sure no little stems stay behind.  Dry them well. I used two dish towels to dry them.  I laid them out on one and then covered with the other and rolled them around to dry them.  Use about 3 pounds total.
In a mixing bowl place two 8 oz packages of cream cheese that has been softened.  You can use low fat or fat free.
Then add 1 cup sour cream.  You can use low fat or fat free in the sour cream as well.
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix well.  I used a mixer because it makes it much easier to mix.
Add the grapes.  Gently stir the grapes to coat them.
I actually had to put them into another bowl to coat the grapes.  Needed more room to stir.  Then kind of flatten them out on top.  Or you can put it in a 9x13 dish.
Sprinkle the top with born sugar.
And chopped pecans.  Cover and store in the fridge until you are ready to eat.  I set it out a little bit before I was ready to eat so the chill was off.
