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.
