RECIPE: Red, White, and Bleu Cheese Apples

A very quick, simple recipe that’s a tasty and healthy snack that can be served for a 4th of July appetizer or for a President’s Day gathering.

##Ingredients##

1. Block of softened bleu cheese

2. Three Gala or Fuji red apples. (Red Delicious apples also work well.)

##Instructions##

1. Core your apples. Don’t peel them as you want a nice, red skin for a sharp contrast to the cheese. Gala and (particularly) Fuji apples work really well for this recipe since they’re sweet, yet slightly tangy. If you prefer a sweeter apple, go for a classic Red Delicious.

2. Slice your apples into decent-sized, 1/4 inch slices.

3. Grab a knife and spread the apple slice with a thin layer of tasty bleu cheese.

4. The red-white-and-bleu color combination is patriotic AND delicious! Fan out your apple slices in an arc to give a nice presentation and add a dollop of bleu cheese in the middle in case your guests prefer cheesier apples.
