  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • cup chopped walnuts

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

  • 5 seedless red grapes, halved

Directions

  1. Whip the cream in a medium bowl until stiff and season with salt and pepper. Set aside 1 ounce of the blue cheese, and mash the rest with a fork in a separate bowl. Stir in the basil, oregano and thyme, then fold in the whipped cream.
