Pistachio Chèvre Log Recipe

The tangy flavor of goat cheese pairs perfectly with the sweet, nutty flavor of pistachio nuts mixed with honey. The fresh chèvre log used for this recipe does not have a rind. Instead, rolling the cheese in pistachio nuts gives its a flavorful, colorful coating. Serve with crackers.
Pistachio Chèvre Log Recipe serves 6-8 as an appetizer

Prep Time: 15 minutes


3/4 cup raw pistachio nuts, shelled
1 Tbsp honey
Dash of cayenne pepper
8 oz fresh chèvre log

Put pistachio nuts, honey and cayenne pepper in a food processor. Process until nuts are finely chopped, about 30-40 seconds.

Pour the pistachio mixture onto a large plate. Gently roll the chèvre log in the nuts, coating all the sides. To add an extra coating of nuts, use your hands to pat the pistachio mixture onto the log.

Transfer the log to a serving platter. Slice the chèvre log, or serve whole.
