About Cheese Stuffed Apricots

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the biggest crowd pleasers. I love to make these stuffed apricots because they simply look so pretty when you put them on a meat and cheese platter. And they are a great cold party appetizer for all your vegetarian guests.

You could also add a piece of walnut or hazelnuts but since more and more people have nut allergies I find it easiest to keep it simple!

Ingredients for the Stuffed Dried Apricots

Gruyere cheese cubes
  • Dried Apricots – I used the Trader Joe’s Dried Apricots for this cold appetizer recipe. But you can find a very similar dried apricots at Target.
  • Gruyère Cheese. If you don’t have Gruyère cheese on hand, you can easily substitute Swiss cheese.
