  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 pounds seedless red grapes
  • 2 pounds seedless green grapes
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans

Test Kitchen Tips
  • In many recipes, thick and tangy Greek yogurt stands in beautifully for sour cream and lightens things up.
  • Mix in chopped candy bars. Crunchy Snickers and Heath bars play particularly well with the juicy grapes.
