Serving a light appetizer like grapes and Gouda cheese instead of something heavy like bread and cheese, when you are serving an big meal will be appreciated by all. The simplicity in flavor will delight and satisfy everyone and they can enjoy their meal without feeling too full before dinner is served.
Cut the gouda in small cubes and assemble on toothpicks with the grapes. Aged Gouda has a rich flavor, but it can crumble easily. So go slowly when placing on the toothpick to prevent it from falling apart.
These apéritif ideas are also great for everyday and to serve to children while you’re getting dinner ready. Serve them a few grapes and Gouda, as an apéritif as the start to a healthy meal.
