How to Make Dates, grapes and goats’ cheese super balls snack

Step-by-Step

  1. I will start with most challenging part of this recipe and that is chopping the pistachio nuts and toasting them. Hard task hey?!
  2. Place the grapes onto a plate and freshly ground for some black pepper over . Pepper will stick if they have been freshly washed and they are slightly damp otherwise you can put the paper into the cheese it's absolutely fine, or, coat the grapes in oil. * As you can see I have grinded the pepper after placing the grapes inside the date.
  3. Cut open the dates and then slightly squeeze the dates to both ends to kind of open the cut a little bit. *
  4. Place each grape into the cut date. Be pretty gentle with carrying out this task.
  5. Divide the goats cheese into eight equal pieces. Place each piece or chunk of cheese into your hands and flatten it with the heel of your other hand.
  6. Now it's time to assemble those little 'fellas' and you can do this by placing each date that already has a grape cushioned inside it on the flattened cheese. Bring the cheese around the date covering it completely.
  7. Roll these balls as you make them, one by one into the chopped pistachios and if those are not salted you could sprinkle some course sea salt over the nuts. It gives that perfect extra saltiness that it's really needed to complement the sweetness of this snack. You know what I mean, right?!
