In the June 1, 2020 Newsletter, Mary J requested a Grape Salad recipe that was posted here some time ago. I think this could possibly be the one she is looking for.

It was posted by Frances in Wesley Chapel, FL, in a 2006 Newsletter. Most every Grape Salad recipe is very similar to this one, and they are all very good.
I hope this might be what she is looking for.

Grape Salad

3 pounds seedless grapes, red or green or a combination of both
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar, to taste
8 ounces sour cream
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts, or chopped pecans
1/2 to 1 cup light brown sugar, to taste

Wash and stem grapes; drain.
In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, sour cream, cream cheese, and vanilla until smooth.
Pour over grapes; mix until thoroughly combined.
In separate bowl, mix nuts and brown sugar together. (I use the maximum amount of brown sugar, because I love the mix of the flavor with the sweet/sour of the grapes.)

Pour grape mixture into serving dish; sprinkle top with sugar and nut mixture.
Chill and serve.

This recipe makes a very large portion (suitable for a family gathering of 20 or possibly more, depending on appetites).
Recipe may be halved.

Keeps well in refrigerator for several days (if it lasts that long).

Warning: This stuff is addictive! The last few times I've made it, I've bypassed many of the meats and carbs and all the chocolate desserts...and ate this till I was ready to pop.
