A neighbor brought a dish of this delicious salad to me and we loved it. She shared the recipe as well. I have not made it yet, but now that you've reminded me, I'll put it in my dinner plans soon. The nutty topping is also good on ice cream, speaking from experience.
This is a really great tasting recipe that is super easy to make and always a hit. It's more nutritious than most deserts and can be made fast without spending a lot of money on ingredients.

Clean and dry grapes. Leave whole. Mix sugar, sour cream and cream cheese in a bowl. Add grapes to mixture and place in a 9 x 13 inch container.
For the topping: Mix pecans, brown sugar, and 5 crushed Butterfinger candy bars. Press topping mixture on top of grape mixture. Refrigerate for 2 hours or longer. It's best if refrigerated for 8 hours or overnight.

Not the same old-same old congealed salad. Delicious, easy, and not likely to be duplicated at a covered dish dinner
This is one of the easiest, tastiest salads I ever made. I volunteered to help with a wedding, and this is one I mixed up:
Mix together cream cheese, sour cream and sugar and beat well. Then stir in remaining ingredients.
I fixed this for a diabetic, and just substituted the sugar for fructose.

Fructose raises triglycerides. Your diabetic friend probably has elevated tiglycerides, so you didn't do a favor. (01/19/2006)
Maybe Splenda sweetener could be substituted for the sugar? It comes in granular form now, and is supposed to measure cup for cup as a sugar substitute. (11/16/2006)
