Smoked Almond Goat Cheese Olive Appetizers

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup chopped smoked almonds
  • 8 ounces goat cheese
  • 32 Spanish green olives, stuffed with pimiento

Preparation:

  1. Add almonds to a small food processor or a nut chopper and pulse briefly to chop. Pour into a small bowl.
  2. Cut the goat cheese into 8 equal pieces, then cut each of these pieces into 4 equal pieces (each piece will be about 1/4 ounce).
  3. Wrap each olive with a 1/4-ounce piece of goat cheese and shape into a small ball. Roll into the chopped almonds and place in a container. Repeat with remaining cheese, olives, and almonds. Once the container is filled, cover and keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Just place them on a serving tray and insert toothpicks.

16 servings (if 2 olive appetizers per person)
