Each morsel is two delicious bites of soft date, sharp blue cheese and tender prosciutto making these easy to assemble and devour. Use a soft goat’s cheese in place of the blue cheese if desired.
12 fresh Medjool dates
80 grams soft blue cheese
2 tablespoons sour cream
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
4-6 slices prosciutto
2 tablespoons finely chopped pistachio nuts
balsamic glaze for drizzling
Slit the dates open and remove the stone. Mash the blue cheese and sour cream together in a bowl and season.
Gently pull the dates apart and fill with a small spoonful of the cheese mixture.
Cut each slice of prosciutto into 2-3 pieces lengthwise. Wrap one slice around each date and place on a serving platter. Sprinkle with the pistachios then drizzle a little glaze over the top of each date. Makes 12 dates
Pantry note: Medjool dates can be found in the fresh produce section of supermarkets.
