Course: Appetizer, Side Dish

Author: Taryn Shank

Ingredients:

The ingredients for this recipe make 10 skewers to serve. You can double the ingredients to make more skewers if desired.

  1. 2 cups of juicy Holiday grapes, whole
  2. 1 bag of arugula, about ½ cup to 1 cup depending on how much you like
  3. 1 wheel of brie cheese (6-8 ounces), cut into ¾ inch to 1 inch slices
  4. 1 package of prosciutto
  5. 1 package mini skewers

Instructions:

  1. Prepare your ingredients to be placed onto the skewers.
  2. Slice cheese, measure out grapes and have arugula and prosciutto handy.
  3. Once everything is ready, begin to add onto your skewers.
  4. Do this by adding one whole grape first (to keep everything in place) and then pile the rest of the ingredients onto the skewer alternating the brie cheese, prosciutto, arugula and Holiday grapes.
  5. Once you have all 10 skewers filled, place in the fridge to cool or serve immediately.

Tips:

  1. For the brie cheese, you want to make sure it is big enough to fit onto the skewer but also small enough to not be overpowering in flavor. I cut mine into ¾ inch to 1 inch slices. You can do less or more depending on how you prefer the flavors in this dish. If you do not like brie cheese, you can opt out and forget the cheese or add a different hard cheese or blue cheese. I highly recommend using brie for the delicious flavor combination with Holiday grapes.
  2. For the prosciutto, I tore apart the large piece into about 2-3 smaller pieces to add onto the skewer. To make this thin meat fit onto the skewers, you’ll need to bunch it up making sure there is more meat than fat on the area that is going onto the skewer. This will help it stay on the stick and not slide off. If making more than 10 skewers, you will need two packages of prosciutto.
  3. For the arugula, make sure to use the largest end of the leaf when adding to the skewer. It is best to place the arugula in between thicker items like brie cheese or Holiday grapes. Use 2-3 arugula leaves per section to insure you’re getting the fullest flavor.
  4. Holiday grapes are easy to place onto the skewers and don’t take much effort. You can cut them in half if desired. The big juicy whole grapes are perfect also. I recommend adding two grapes to each skewer.

Holiday grapes truly make this recipe with their candy-like sweetness that comes straight from the vine. This recipe only requires four ingredients and about 10 minutes to put together. Once finished you’ll have a sweet, mouth watering, refined sugar-free appetizer that will leave your guest and family begging for more. This recipe feeds 4-6 people.
