Feta, Herb, and Pistachio Balls
Makes 16 Balls
Net Carbohydrates 2 per ball
4 – ounces , shelled pistachio nuts
2- 8 0unce packages cream cheese
6- ounces Feta cheese
2- tsp. dry basil
1 -Tsp. dry oregano
1 -Tbsp. fresh parsley chopped
Note: While I usually like to use fresh herbs, this recipe gets too wet and it is hard to shape the balls and have them hold together.
I suspect that this recipe can also be made with goat cheese but my friend Peter ruined goat cheese for me by suggesting it” tasted like you were licking a goat”.
How I prepare this Recipe.
Bring cheeses to room temperature
Chop the pistachios into very small bits and place on a dish. Combine all of the remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until firm. Using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon, scoop the cheese out and form into a ball. Roll the balls in the chopped pistachio nuts and chill until firm again. Serve with Lavash chips.
