Blue Cheese-Stuffed Strawberries Recipe

Publisher Photo
I was enjoying a salad with strawberries and blue cheese when the idea hit me to stuff the strawberries and serve them as an appetizer. It worked out great, and the flavors blend so nicely. —Diane Nemitz, Ludington, Michigan

Delicious! I cored the strawberries with a "tomato king" tool...worked great. To serve I cut some wooden skewers in half and stuck one in the bottom of each stuffed berry...then popped them in a short vase.

I replaced the blue cheese with Philadelphia Indulgence Dark chocolate cream cheese. It is yummy. I blended the regular cream cheese and the chocolate and added slivered almonds to the mix. Then sprinkled more almonds on top before pouring the balsamic vinegar over them. I left some strawberries without vinegar topping. It is an acquired taste ! What an impressive dessert !
