And its colors couldn't be more perfect for the upcoming season. So grab three quick ingredients, about five spare minutes and you'll have a great little appetizer to take to your next holiday party.
I tried it out on crackers and it was pretty decent. Well, let me clairfy. The cheese mixture was terrific. The cracker and cheese combo was fine. I think I'll toast some crostini next time and it'll hit the spot.
Enjoy your holiday season!
2 tablespoons roasted pistachios, chopped
2 tablespoons dried cranberries, chopped
1 8- to 10-ounce log fresh goat cheese
On a large plate, combine the pistachios and cranberries.
Roll the goat cheese in the fruit and nut mixture to coat. Serve with crackers or bread.
Note: The cheese can be coated up to 2 days in advance; refrigerate covered.
I didn't find that rolling the cheese in the mixture really picked up the fruit and nuts quite like I'd hoped, so I ended up just pressing them onto the log. Worked like a dream - I told you this recipe was easy.
