- ripe, organic pears -
- fresh, crisp arugula -
It just so happened that I had Wine Club this week and needed a great little appetizer to take. I stumbled across this recipe and knew it'd be a hit. When I received pears and arugula in my bitty box delivery, I knew it was the one. It's kismet, no?
The crisp arugula gets laid over a juicy pear wedge, topped with creamy blue cheese and wrapped with a salty slice of prosciutto.
It makes quite a bit... but doesn't last for long!
Pears with Blue Cheese and Prosciutto
2 pears (such as Bosc or Bartlett), each cut into 8 wedges
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup arugula
3 ounces blue cheese, cut into small pieces
6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut in half lenthwise
In a large bowl, toss the pears and lemon juice.
Layer a slice of pear, an arugula leaf, and a piece of cheese on a piece of proscuitto and roll up.
That's about it... it's as simple as it sounds. Quick to make, quick to disappear.
