Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 1/2 cup pitted dates, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 log (8 ounces) fresh goat cheese
  • 8 egg roll wrappers
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • 1/4 cup raspberry vinaigrette
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

Directions

In a small shallow bowl, combine the walnuts, dates, cardamom and cinnamon. Cut cheese into eight pieces; shape each piece into a 3-in. log. Roll in walnut mixture.
Place one cheese log in the center of one egg roll wrapper. (Keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use.) Fold bottom corner over filling. Fold sides toward center over filling. Moisten remaining corner with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat.
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry egg rolls, a few at a time, for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown, turning often. Drain on paper towels.
Combine vinaigrette and soy sauce; serve with egg rolls. Yield: 8 egg rolls (1/4 cup sauce).
