Recipe by Cucina Casalingo

This recipe is adapted from an appetizer served at Tabard Inn Restaurant in Washington DC. The best way to store dates is to put them in bags and keep them in the freezer. Just take them out when you need them and let them thaw. They will last about one year before they begin to sugar.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 large medjool dates
  • 4 ounces goat cheese
  • 12 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 14 cup sugar
  • 1 bunch radicchio


  1. Place the vinegar and sugar in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
  2. Dissolve sugar and reduce until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.
  3. Make a slit in each date and fill with goat cheese.
  4. Drizzle balsamic reduction onto a small plate in an attractive design.
  5. Place a few small radicchio leaves on top and place 2 or 3 dates on top of the leaves.
  6. Drizzle a little more reduction on top of the dates.
