Green Grape and Pear Mallo Salad

A summery picnic potluck... So quick and easy and all the kids love this one!
 Great at Christmas time too when decorated with maraschino cherries.

1 pound seedless green grapes or red washed and blotted dry ( use some of each if you like)
3 green chopped pears
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
1/2 cup package chopped pecans, almonds or other nuts

Beat the cheese cheese at room temperature and marshmallow creme until light and fluffy around 5 minutes. 
Combine grapes and pears in the bowl. Mix the creme into the fruit until blended.
Simple with nuts, refrigerate or serve immediately.

For some reason this salad seems very retro to me, like something my mom would have made. I do remember her making a salad with nuts, grapes and marsmallows, but not marshmallow cream. I may have to try this and see if I can capture some of my youth.
