Prosciutto, Pear, And Blue Cheese Appetizers


Five ingredients are all it takes to whip up an elegant and delicious no-bake appetizer that’s fancy enough to serve at cocktail parties or holidays, yet easy enough to make before a weeknight dinner.



2 large, ripe pears, cut lengthwise into 8 wedges and the wedge of core scooped out

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

¼ cup fresh arugula 

3 ounces blue cheese, cut into 8 pieces

6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut in half lengthwise


In a large bowl, toss the pears and lemon juice together.  Be sure that each pear wedge has a coating of lemon juice on all of the cut sides.  This will prevent them from browning.

Lay a slice of prosciutto on a flat surface.  Top with a slice of pear and a piece of cheese.

Roll the prosciutto around the pear and cheese.  Tuck an arugula leaf into the prosciutto so that it sticks out decoratively.

Place each piece on a rectangular serving platter.
