(NC) - Creamy cheese truffles harmonize with the pungent taste of olive and crunchy coating of California walnuts. This dish can be served with a mixture of flatbreads for taste and presentation.
In large, dry skillet over medium-high heat, toast walnuts, stirring occasionally, until lightly brown, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Combine cream cheese, feta cheese, sundried tomatoes, lemon rind, and oregano. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Scoop a tablespoon of cheese mixture and pat around an olive, forming a ball. Repeat until all of the cheese is used up.
Place walnuts in food processor; pulse until evenly and finely chopped. Transfer to a pie plate. Roll each ball in ground walnuts to coat. Refrigerate. At serving time, place 3 truffles in a martini glass; garnish with a sprig of fresh oregano.
Cheese truffles can be stored in refrigerator up to two days before serving.
Serving Size: Makes 8 (3 Truffles) Servings
