Here is a walnut/goat cheese-stuffed date wrapped in prosciutto. topped with a vinaigrette and drizzled in local honey. Wow that’s a mouthful. Say that five times fast.
But, all that said, it is yummy, easy and can be served utensil-free.
All you need are medjool dates, walnuts goat cheese and thin-sliced prosciutto.
Pit the dates.Open the dates wide and put in a pinch of goat cheese. Break walnuts into small pieces in your hands and place a small piece into each date. Sprinkle each date with a small amount of salt and pepper.Close the dates up.Leaving the prosciutto on the plastic liner, cut in half with a knife. Place one date on top of one half of the prosciutto and roll up.They do not have to be perfect. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for about 5-7 minutes.Let cool. Meanwhile, whisk 1 tablespoon of blackberry balsamic vinegar and 1 tablespoon Meyer lemon olive oil (regular balsamic/olive oil works fine, too.) Add salt and pepper to taste.Place dates on a serving dish and drizzle with vinaigrette and 1 tablespoon of honey.And serve!
(I used 9 dates, 1/4 cup goat cheese, 5 walnuts and slices of prosciutto for this batch. You can adjust accordingly.)Bon appetite!
