The recipe calls for gorgonzola cheese but we are not blue cheese fans. So I thought smoked gouda!
Anyway, I think any cheese one loves with fruit can substitute here.
I first cut up celery into snack sizes.
Then diced up half of a granny smith apple and equal parts of the gouda cheese. I simply eyeballed the amount to work with based on the amount of celery chopped up.
The other cheese is mascarpone which helps to hold it together. So this gets all mixed up.
Then put the filling in the celery!
Messy, but total yum! Next time I am going to try cheddar with cream cheese as the binder. I think that will be equally tasty, yet different.
I use organic celery which tends to be really small so it is hard to fill. Regular celery would work better but this is one of those high pesticide veggies in the U.S.!
I hope you try this snack if you like celery, cheese and apples. I don't think you will be disappointed. Thank you for stopping by. ~Val
