This simple recipe from Tyler Florence is one that we found is very easy to whip up in about 15 minutes.  They are impressive as a starter or as canapes.

  • 4 ounces cream cheese; softened
  • 8 ounces blue cheese; softened
  • 3 T. port
  • 2 lbs. seedless white grapes
  • 1 c. pistachios, ground


Mash the cream cheese and blue cheese together in a bowl until combined. Pour in port and mix until blended. Grab a bit of the cheese in one hand and a grape in the other. Put the two together and roll the grape around in your hands until completely covered in cheese. Roll the cheese – covered grapes in the ground pisatchios. Chill until ready to serve.
