Goat cheese stuffed dates


Stuffed dates are the perfect appetizer for a "Moroccan" night. These chewy, cold treats can be served as a snack, hors d’oeuvre, or dessert. They are easy to make and ridiculously testy. The sweetness of the dates and the savory flavor of the goat cheese make a perfect combination of flavors in your mouth.


Ingredients
  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • 16 Medjool dried dates, each cut in half, pits removed

    Preparation

    1. Combine goat cheese, garlic, parsley and salt in a medium bowl and mash with a fork until blended.
    2. Spoon a heaping teaspoon of cheese mixture into each split date.
    3.  Serve dates immediately or refrigerate, covered, for up to 2 hours, then bring to room temperature and serve.

     

    Dates cut in half - Great appetizers
    Large dates - Great for dessert
