The Twelve Grapes of Luck - A Fun New Year's Eve Tradition

Friday, December 23, 2016

The Twelve Grapes of Luck is a fun New Year's Eve tradition that originated in Spain. When the clock strikes midnight you eat twelve grapes; one for each month of the year ahead. Some say that sweet grapes are a sign of good months while sour grapes are a sign of not-so-good months, but it's only all for fun and perhaps a new tradition!

Creamy Grape Salad Recipe

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 pounds seedless red grapes
  • 2 pounds seedless green grapes
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans
1.      In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and vanilla until blended. Add grapes and toss to coat.
