Apricot, Walnut, and Goat Cheese Appetizer Bites

I grew up near an Albertsons, and had many fond memories of it, so when we moved closer to a local Albertsons store, I was very excited to check it out.

They’ve got a new line called Signature, available exclusively at Albertsons and other stores in the Albertsons company, that includes everything from soup to nuts.  From breakfast to dinner and everything in between, Signature has you covered with coffee, cereal, fresh produce, prepared foods, and pantry staples.  Plus, all Signature products are backed with a 100% money-back guarantee.

I got to try out an assortment of Signature products at home, and let me tell you, we’ve been eating well over the past few days.

There was French roast coffee for breakfast.  There was angel hair pasta, tomatoes, tomato sauce, and olives for a pasta dinner.  Italian dressing for our salads.  Cookies for dessert.  And paper towels to clean up after!

I saved the bag of Signature apricots for a special goat cheese appetizer.  I love goat cheese and haven’t written about it nearly as much as I should, considering it’s one of my favorite foods.  Hopefully, this recipe will begin to make up for that.
