Doug and I went over to my aunt and uncle's house for dinner a few days ago. Aunt Bess threw together the most beautiful cheese tray in no time. Apple slices, grapes, figs, wheat crackers, and gorgonzola drizzled with honey and sprinkled with walnuts. Yum. It was a perfect compliment to our glasses of Pinot Noir.
Tip: Whole Foods will freshly cut a slice of gorgonzola cheese (or whatever cheese you like) for exactly the number of guests you anticipate. They do a pretty good job at knowing how much to purchase!
Honey Gorgonzola with Walnuts
(Recipe from Aunt Bess)
Amounts vary per number of guests
1 wedge or block of Gorgonzola Cheese
Wheat Crackers (for serving)
Apple(s), thinly sliced (for serving)
1 Bunch Red Grapes (for serving)
Fresh Figs, sliced lengthwise (for serving)
This cheese tray is easy to assemble. Make sure that all of your fruit is washed and patted dry with a paper towel. Place the cheese in the middle of the platter. Place the crackers, apples, grapes, and figs around the cheese. Drizzle the cheese with good honey and then sprinkle with the chopped walnuts.
