Chevre Rolled Grapes

Yield: 30 pieces

These grapes are fantastic for a cocktail party! They are easily made the day before-we would recommend rolling in nuts on the day of the party to keep them crunchy. 

Ingredients:

30 each                        Grapes, seedless, washed (red and/or green)

8 ounces                      Chevre goat cheese, room temperature

½ cup                          Pistachios, shelled, roasted, skinned, salted

Method:

-In a food processor, pulse the pistachio nuts until they are finely ground, like the texture of crushed pepper.

-Coat the grapes with a small amount of the soft goat cheese in your hands by molding the cheese around the grapes, and gently rolling into a ball.

-Toss the grapes with the ground nuts until covered, gently pushing the nuts into the cheese so that the grapes are fully covered and round and resemble a green grape.

-Place onto a platter, piling them so that they look like a bunch of grapes.

We like to garnish with real grape leaves and vines.
