  • 3 Apples
  • 6 ounces blue cheese or whipped cream cheese or BOTH
  • ¼ cup celery thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons chives chopped
  • 3 tablespoons of walnuts lightly toasted and chopped
  • handful of pomegranate seeds
  • 3-4 tablespoons honey optional, for drizzling
  • a few fresh thyme leaves optional, as garnish


  • Lay an apple on its side and slice it in ¼-inch thick slices. Slice the rest of the apples.
  • Place each apple slice on a large plate and spread it with cheese.
  • Sprinkle each slice with celery, chives, walnuts and pomegranate seeds. If preferred, drizzle them with honey and garnish with fresh thyme leaves.
  • Serve immediately.


* Alternatively, you can slice the apples in chunks and serve them on a cheese board.
* I used only three apples, but if you are serving for more people feel free the double or even triple the recipe.
