Raisin-Walnut Wontons with Goat Cheese and Honey-Mustard Dipping Sauce
I ran across this recipe years ago, and made them to take to a party! Not, because I thought I would particularly like them, but more for the fact: I had all of the ingredients on hand. So, I make the wontons and take them to the party which happened to be next door. There was a plethora of wonderful food all prepared by my friends, and as it turned out the wontons were a really big hit! They are really quick and easy to make, and perfect for a no-fuss appetizer at your next party.

Dipping Sauce:
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
5 ounces fresh goat cheese
20 to 25 prepared wonton wrappers
olive oil, for frying

For dipping sauce, whisk mustard, honey, vinegar and parsley together in small bowl. Turn into serving bowl, cover and set aside in refrigerator.
In a bowl, thoroughly mix raisins, walnuts and cheese. Arrange several wonton wrappers on lightly floured work surface and spoon a heaping teaspoon of raisin mixture in center of each. Dampen edges of wontons with a little water and fold diagonally, corner to corner, over filling. Carefully and firmly seal edges together. Repeat for remaining filling and wontons. Heat 2 inches of olive oil in deep fryer or wok over medium heat. Fry prepared wontons in batches of 4 or 5 until golden, turning once. Drain on paper towels.


  1. As you know, I've never been a fan of raisins, but these wontons sound SCRUMPTIOUS! When will you make them next?

  2. I promise I will make them for the "NEXT" Bee meeting!!!
