It is summertime in Arkansas, a fun time to enjoy the beautiful natural state, but it is HOT! When the temperature starts to spike, the last thing I want to do is stand over a hot stove and heat up the entire kitchen. Thankfully, there is no cooking involved in this month’s “What’s Cookin’ at First Security” cookbook recipe. Just some easy mixing to whip up this fresh Grape Salad in no time. It is a delectable burst of summer in your mouth with no sweating in the kitchen.
This deliciously easy Grape Salad recipe was submitted by two great ladies: Margaret Smith who is senior vice president of marketing in Conway and Jana Nichols, a teller in Bryant.
Dry grapes by rolling them between paper towels. Grapes must be dry. Combine sugars and almonds. Cream softened cream cheese and sour cream. Mix with dry grapes. Reserve ½ cup sugar mixture to sprinkle on top. Mix remaining sugar mixture with grapes. Sprinkle remaining sugar mixture and extra almonds on top. Chill before serving.
Note: Pecans can be substituted for almonds.
