pear + blue cheese appetizer

pear+ blue cheese appetizers on a white platter sitting on a table with two glasses of white wine.

Pears, blue cheese, prosciutto, and arugula—four simple ingredients for an appetizer you can prepare hours ahead of time. I’ve been curating a small repertoire of core appetizers that use ingredients I usually have on hand, and this recipe meets all my requirements: visual appeal and delectable flavors, plus it’s easy to assemble at the last minute if necessary. This recipe was published in the January 2008 issue of Real Simple magazine.
