Grape Salad

2 lbs green seedless grapes (I only used red because they didn't have green at Winco)
2 lbs red seedless grapes
8 ounces sour cream (I used plain yogurt because I had it on hand)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping Ingredients
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup crushed pecans

Wash and stem grapes. Set aside to dry. Beat cream cheese and sugar together, then stir in sour cream and vanilla by hand. Stir grapes into mixture, and pour in large serving bowl. I would use a wide, long bowl instead of a tall deep bowl so that there is more surface area for the topping. Combine brown sugar and crushed pecans. Sprinkle over top of grapes to cover completely. Don't skimp on the makes this dish! Chill overnight. It gets better with time!
