Here is the 3rd installment of the series of holiday appetizer from California Walnuts. For me, anything with asparagus gets a thumbs up! The tangy goat cheese, the salty prosciutto, and the earthy flavoured asparagus are definitely a match made in heaven!

Makes 16 pieces

  • 1/2 cup California walnut pieces, coarsely chopped
  • 1 (140g or 5 oz) goat cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 8 sliced prosciutto
  • 10-16 spears of asparagus, blanched and cooled
  • 18 roasted red pepper strips

In a medium bowl, combine walnuts, goat cheese and parsley.

Lay 4 slices of prosciutto on a cutting board, slightly overlapping each slice, to form a square shaped layer.

Spread half of the walnut mixture across the centre of prosciutto square. Lay 5 to 8 asparagus spears (horizontally) over the mixture and top with 9 strips of red pepper. Carefully pick up the prosciutto ends closest to you and roll firmly into sushi shaped roll. Repeat these steps with the remaining ingredients.

To serve, slice each roll evenly into 8 pieces.

Tip: Goat cheese can be substituted with cream cheese.
