Description:
I made these for a holiday party for 20 people. I doubled the amount of prosciutto and used 1 1/2 containers of feta cheese. Piping goat cheese into the dates was easy and I cut the basil into smaller strips because my dates were not huge. Easy to make but it took time to put it all together. The men in the group liked these and I would make again. I love the combination of sweet and salty. Just make sure there is a balance. Enjoy!
Dates with feta and prosciutto
These moreish bites are just as delicious without the prosciutto if you want to make them for vegetarians. I love the combination of sweet and salty. Just make sure there is a balance. Enjoy!

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time6 minsCook Time14 minsTotal Time20 mins
 12 Piarom dates
 12 flat-leaf parsley sprigs
 100 g low-fat feta, sliced 1cm thick
 6 thin slices prosciutto, halved lengthways
 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Cut a slit along the top of each date, then remove and discard the seed. Tuck a parsley sprig and feta slice into each date and gently squeeze closed. Wrap a prosciutto strip around each date, and tie off with a knot, trimming the ends so they sit upright.

Place dates on a baking tray, drizzle with oil and bake for 5-8 minutes until warmed through. Spear each one with a knotted bamboo skewer, then serve.
