recipe | grapes wrapped in goat cheese

Monday, January 23, 2012



My friend Rachel and I made these grapes wrapped in goat cheese for my sister's 29th birthday celebration.  They are incredibly tasty, and equally simple and enjoyable to make.  




Ingredients
- 1 package red grapes
- 1 lb. goat cheese (if you don't like goat cheese, you could use a milder soft cheese)
- large handful of walnuts

Directions
Wash the grapes and dry thoroughly.  Gently mold goat cheese around individual grapes, carefully covering the entire grape.  I used the entire package of cheese, and then munched on the leftover grapes.  Chop walnuts, then roll cheese-covered grapes in walnuts (you may want to gently press the walnuts into the cheese for extra coverage).  Chill before serving.  Then place on a thrifted plate, and voila, you're done!

Time to enjoy these scrumptious treats!

Have a blessed Monday, friends.

till tomorrow,
Rebecca

  1. This is my favorite "special" snack!! My husband and I love them so much we requested them for our wedding. Instead of walnuts, we use pistachio's though.

  15. OK...So I am a Vegan...and saying that i LOVE goat cheese almost makes me cringe. Goat cheese is the ONLY cheese i will ever eat, and those times are VERY FEW and far between. However, these look AMAZING...but, for those who don't like [or just don't eat] nuts (my son), do you [or anyone] have a suggestion for alternatives to roll them in??

  16. I'll be stopping by the market on my way home from work. These sound amazing! Thanks to Cup of Jo for sending me to your blog. Love it!

    And as for an alternative to nuts, maybe a finely crushed granola or even honey-wheat cracker crumbs?

  17. I think these would also present really nicely with out the nuts and just a little spoon of a fruit preserve dabbed on top.

  21. @Anonymous: Like Tamara suggested, I'd try using cracker crumbs (but not crushed too much). Or for a sweet alternative, maybe dried fruit, like cranberry bits?

  22. I just ate some of these, just now. I'm not kidding! So good.

  23. I never would have thought of rolling together three of the foods I love most on cheese plates! Brilliant appetizer concept.
