Experiment #71: Goat cheese with Pistachios and Cranberries

This recipe is probably the easiest recipe you can make for a party with delicious results.  Three ingredients to make a quick party appetizer.

The original recipe from the Wall Street Cheat Sheet was for this recipe to make several balls of goat cheese for elegant appetizers.  I had neither the time to make a fussy appetizer, so I decided to create a goat cheese log with the same ingredients. 

Three ingredients:

Goat cheese log with pistachios and cranberries adapted from the Wall Street cheat sheet

11 oz. goat cheese at room temperature
1 cup dried cranberries, chopped finely
1 cup salted roasted pistachios, chopped finely

Mix the goat cheese with 1/3 cup dried cranberries. Using plastic wrap mold the mixture back into a log.  

Mix the remaining cranberries and pistachios on the cutting board until well distributed.  

Roll the goat cheese log in the cranberry pistachio mixture to coat outside of the log and press to adhere. 

This recipe can be made ahead of time and kept in a refrigerator until your party. 

Serve with a variety to crackers. 

I really liked this recipe. Great flavors and festive colors and so easy. 

 The next morning I spread the remainder over my morning bagel. I loved it.
