Creamy goat cheese and rich pistachios? Yum. Make these easy appetizers ahead of time and just take them out of the fridge when you’re ready to serve.
Makes 48 pieces
- 11 oz. fresh goat cheese (.25 ounces for each ball)
- 4 oz. coarsely chopped pistachio nuts
- 48 washed and dried baby spinach leaves
Bring goat cheese to room temperature. Using your hands, roll forty-eight 1/2-inch cheese balls and place them on a piece of parchment paper. Shake the nuts in a fine mesh sieve to remove dust, then place in a small, shallow bowl. Roll each cheese ball in the nuts to coat evenly.
To serve, arrange the spinach leaves on a serving tray, and place each cheese ball on a leaf. Serve immediately.
The cheese balls can be prepared the day before the event. Store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to serve.
