Ingredients

  • 11 ounces fresh goat cheese
  • 4 ounces coarsely chopped pisatchio nuts
  • 48 washed and dried baby spinach leaves

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Bring goat cheese to room temperature. Using your hands, roll forty-eight 1/2-inch balls, and place them on a piece of parchment paper. Shake the nuts in a fine mesh sieve to remove dust, then place in a small, shallow bowl. Roll each cheese ball in the nuts to coat evenly.

  2. Step 2

    The cheese balls can be prepared the day before the event. Store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container until ready to serve.

  3. Step 3

    To serve, arrange the spinach leaves on a serving tray, and place each cheese ball on a leaf. Serve immediately.

    A bit plain, but they were snapped up by guests who do not like stronger cheeses. While it looked nice, really does not need the spinach leaves.
