Pistachio Stuffed Date Appetizer

This Pistachio Date Appetizer is so easy to make but they pack a very interesting punch!

I soaked the dates in white port to soften them a bit. You could use red port or orange juice or a bit of red or white wine if you don’t have white port.

Buy nice pitted dates.  I had a big bag from Costco that we were using for smoothies and other recipes.  They tasted great but they didn’t looks so appetizing.  For my next party I will ferret out some nice plump uniform dates.  I will repost photos when available.

I was also able to buy pistachios already shelled.  I got mine in my local grocery store but I know you can also buy them at Bulk Barn. That sure takes a lot of work out of the equation!

These tick a lot of boxes – gluten free, no cook, only 4 ingredients!

You can switch these up to suit your taste – sub pecans for the pistachios if you like, sub cream cheese for the goat cheese if you like.  I have not tried this but I have read that even peanut butter goes well with dates.  (Let me know if you have tried dates with peanut butter!! )
