  • 16 large dates
  • 1 piece (3 ounces) Parmesan cheese
  • 16 walnut halves


  1. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast walnuts until fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  2. Using a paring knife, slit dates lengthwise, (do not cut all the way through) and remove pits.
  3. Cut Parmesan into thin shards about the length of the date.
  4. Place a walnut half and a piece of cheese in each date and close the date around the cheese to seal.
