Variations on a Delicious Theme
Goat cheese, caramelized nuts, and honey are a match made in heaven, and there are countless ways to enjoy them. For a crisper bite, use pear slices instead of apples. You can also spread the goat cheese on a low sodium crostini or cracker. I love using Wheat Thins Hint of Salt crackers to mix it up. They contain 55 mg of sodium in 16 crackers. That’s just over 3 mg of sodium per cracker!
I love using Aldi’s Emporium Selection Plain Goat Cheese for this recipe, but you can use your favorite lower sodium goat cheese instead. You can swap Aldi’s Emporium Selection Honey Goat Cheese for the plain for added honey flavor. The honey goat cheese contains only 75 mg of sodium per ounce.
The caramelized nuts give this appetizer additional flavor, but feel free to use plain, unsalted chopped nuts instead. Toast them first for the best flavor.
Low Sodium Apple & Goat Cheese Appetizer with Caramelized Nuts FAQs
How do I keep the apples from oxidizing after I assemble these?
Apples will start to turn brown once air hits them. Spread the goat cheese evenly over each apple slice to cover it completely. This will slow down the oxidization process. The best way to prevent the apples from turning brown is to prepare them just before you serve them.
