Gorgonzola Fruit Torta

One of my dear friends had a spa party a few weeks ago, and I wanted to bring a snack to share. I had been hearing about this recipe for years, and I finally got around to making it.

O…M…G… you guys! Not only was this appetizer drop dead gorgeous, it was also one of the most addictive things I’ve ever eaten.

Gorgonzola Fruit Torta

Pungent gorgonzola is blended with cream cheese and layered with fresh herbs and dried fruits. After it firms up in the fridge, it’s topped with toasted almonds for a nice bit of crunch.

Serve this with your favorite crackers and go to town slathering them with this sweet, tangy, creamy deliciousness.
