    10 Ways to be Heart-Smart This National Heart Month

    Ingredients:
    ½ lb. ‘Chevre’ Goat Cheese
    ½ lb. Cream Cheese
    40 Seedless Green Grapes, washed and dried
    ½ lb. Shelled Pistachios

    Procedure:
    Pulse the Pistachios in a food processor until finely minced, being careful not to over-process.  Set aside.
    Combine the Goat Cheese and the Cream Cheese and mix well.  Chill the mixture.
    Wrap a small amount of cheese mixture around each grape and roll by hand to distribute evenly.  Lay out on a lined sheet pan and chill well.
    Just prior to serving, roll the grapes in the nut powder and shape a bit further by hand.  Do not refrigerate once they have been rolled out.
    Arrange the grapes on a plate or platter in the shape of a natural bunch of grapes.

    Variations:
    Use any soft, sharp cheese for the Goat Cheese, such as Gorgonzola or Stilton.
    Use Red or Black Grapes and substitute toasted Black Sesame Seeds for the Pistachios.
