"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

1-2 bunches Green seedless grapes
1 C. Walnuts (or almonds, or cashews, or peanuts- any unsalted
nut of your choosing), chopped finely
16 oz. Alouette cheese (or similar)

Wash grapes and separate from bunch. Spread out paper
towels on the counter and spread out the grapes to dry. Pat
down the top with another paper towel- grapes need to be
thoroughly dry.
Toast nuts lightly in toaster oven. Chop finely in food
processor or by hand.
In med. bowl, combine nuts and cheese, creating a uniform
mixture. Individually, cover each grape with the nut mixture
and place in serving bowl.
Can be stored in the fridge, covered, for up to 24 hours.

Preparation Time:
20-60min, depending on how many grapes
Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I took my love of dipping grapes in Alouette
cheese one step further. It sounds kinda strange, but I've
watched my friends devour bowl after bowl of these. They're
a little labor intensive, but worth it for a special occasion.
Also- it's a good way to keep that "way too early" guest
occupied while you continue to prep for the party.
