Zucchini Cherry Bites

Zucchini Cherry Bites

Ingredients

Zucchini 1
Lemon 2
Cherries 10
Goat Cheese 1/4 Cup
Fresh Basil 1 teaspoon
Lemons 2
Parmesan 1/4 Cup
Olive Oil 4 Tablespoons

I saw this recipe in Rachel Ray’s magazine. Its a really easy fresh tasting appetizer.

If you don’t like raw Zucchini use Cucumber instead.

  1. Remove the pits from the Cherries by placing the Cherry on the mouth of a water bottle and push through the pit with a chopstick so the pit falls into the water bottle for easy cleanup.
  2. Mix the Goat Cheese with the diced Basil, 1/2 the Lemon Zest & 2 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice.
  3. Place the Goat Cheese mixture into a piping bag and squeeze into the Cherry (place a finger over one of the holes.
  4. Slice the Zucchini lengthwise into thin strips.
  5. Place in a bowl with Lemon Juice, Oil & Zest (or any premade Dressing you have) Salt & Pepper.
  6. Add the stuffed Cherry onto a skewer then fold the Zucchini and add to the skewer.
  7. Grate Parmesan and Lemon Zest over the tray of skewers.
