Wisconsin is getting slammed with blizzards this winter, after three relatively easy years of light snow and moderately cold temperatures.
We are eating our share of of hearty and savory dishes these days, so it was a pleasant surprise - and a treat for the palate - to stumble upon this dessert of fresh green grapes, walnuts, sour cream, cream cheese and brown sugar.
I have long been a fan of topping strawberries or blueberries with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of brown sugar. It's easy and elegant.
I never thought about pairing green grapes with sour cream. But my sister introduced me to this at an impromptu lunch we had with our mother over the weekend.
I am hooked. You will be, too!
Here is is:
2 large bunches green grapes, stems removed
1 cup sour cream
1 cup cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup Splenda/brown sugar blend
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Blend sour cream and cream cheese. Add grapes. Toss. Top with brown sugar and walnuts.
