I love the sweet and salty combo, so this prosciutto, date and goat cheese recipe is bomb! And the best part? Super simple! Starting with high quality ingredients takes away the stress of being an expert home chef. I chose to pair this recipe with our eco.love Reserve Rosé because the wine is so fresh and crisp with delish wild strawberry notes, that work beautifully with the dish. The music? This is a happy, energetic, wine and food pairing and I reflected that in the music choice, with a throw back twist! - AM
1/3 cup soft herbed goat cheese
16 Medjool dates, pitted
16 large basil leaves
4 wide, thin slices prosciutto di Parma, each cut into 4 long strips
16 toothpicks, soaked in water 10 minutes
Heat broiler to low. Spoon 1 teaspoon cheese into each date; wrap with a basil leaf, then a prosciutto strip. Secure with a toothpick. Broil until cheese bubbles, about 3 minutes. Serve warm.
