#12TastesofChristmas – Pears With Blue Cheese and Prosciutto

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…a partridge in a pear tree.

This simple appetizer takes about five minutes to prepare. The slightly spicy flavor of the arugula compliments the sweet pear and the richness of the prosciutto and blue cheese. There are kosher and vegetarian alternatives for the prosciutto as well.

No partridges were harmed in the making of this recipe.


2 pears cut into 8 wedges each
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 cup arugula
3 ounces blue cheese, cut into small pieces
6 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut lengthwise to make sixteen strips in all


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 prosciutto and roll up.
