dallys's grape salad

 best salad ever for a bbq
dallys made this once for a family bbq...
it was so good, so i made it once for a bbq with matt's family...

i am now required to make it every time...
it is so good and super easy...

dallys' grape salad

1 large bunch grapes
(about the size you get a costco)
i prefer red because they are sweeter
but green works great
wash and remove from the vine

8 oz. cool whip
8 oz. good sour cream
(i prefer daisy because it is creamier and makes the salad prettier:))
combine the cool whip and sour cream
fold with grapes

sugar nuts
(this is mom's recipe and is in our cookbooks)

4 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
(i prefer pecans for this salad)
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

mix ingredients in a heavy skillet
cook until water disappears
and nuts have a sugary appearance.
remove from heat and pour nuts onto a baking sheet.
separate quickly with 2 forks.

this salad takes about one to two cups of nuts
depending on how many you want
just save the rest in a plastic bag for the next time
you make this salad.
because once you make it,
you will want to make it again.
so good...

i hope you will try this salad...
it is really easy and it is always a hit...
thanks dallys...

tonight i am relaxing and watching "the postman"
with kevin costner
one of my favs:)
(i know i say that about almost every
movie and book, but what can i say?
i love them)

ps...our wednesday word challenge has been so fun...
i love seeing what everyone is doing and what they come up with...
thanks for being such good sports:)

more later...
