Ingredients

Instructions

Lay out individual slices of prosciutto (side by side and well separated) on a clean  dry surface with short edges in a horizontal position. Spread each slice entirely  and evenly with about 1 1/3 tablespoons of herb cream cheese.

Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of chopped fresh dill over cream cheese covering bottom half of each Prosciutto ham slice.

At lower edge, arrange one entire "log-like" stem of heart of palm horizontally across dill and cream cheese garnished slice of Prosciutto.

Tightly roll ham around heart of palm stem, gently spreading/stretching ham along length of heart of palm and expelling trapped air. Trim off any protruding heart of palm.

Wrap rolls (seam side down) in plastic wrap and refrigerate. (Note: The rolls may be prepared to this point up to 24 hours before serving.)

Before serving, remove rolls from refrigerator and remove plastic wrap.

Arrange rolls with seam side down; add a line of herb cream cheese (about 2 teaspoons) along top of each roll; press chopped macadamia nuts into cream
cheese garnish.

With a sharp knife, cut each roll crosswise into 5 equal slices/pieces.

Note:
Steps 6 and 7 may also be done hours in advance. Store the hors d’oeuvres (reassembled in rows and closely covered with plastic wrap) in an airtight plastic
container. Refrigerate.

Artistically arrange slices in a standing position (macadamia nuts up).
