roquefort grapes

Looking for a fun appetizer to take to a wine tasting?  One Foodie-isms fan is co-hosting a wine tasting and was looking for something fun to share as an appetizer.  Roquefort Grapes pairs well with wine and is so unexpected.  Once you taste one – you will be hooked.

Roquefort Grapes
8 oz. of crumbled Roquefort or similar blue cheese
3 Tablespoons of sour cream
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 bag of your favorite seedless grapes


Combine blue cheese and sour cream in a bowl. The consistency should not be too dry, but not too runny.

Coarsely chop walnuts. Add nuts to a separate shallow bowl.

Roll grapes in blue cheese mixture. Then roll grapes in the chopped nuts.

I like to make these a day ahead of an event. Store in refrigeration to allow them to set. Serve either chilled or at room temperature.
