Servings 6 servings


  • 2 pears sliced thin
  • 1 handful of arugula
  • 8 slices prosciutto cut in half lengthwise
  • 8 oz manchego
  • 2 tbsp balsamic glaze
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  • Slice pears into thin slices and place in a bowl of lemon water. Let sit for a minute then remove and pat dry.
  • Slice the prosciutto pieces lengthwise and lay out on a cutting board. Slice the manchego into pieces that are not too thick but will not break in half.
  • Begin to assemble by laying down one piece of prosciutto, placing one pear slice at one end, a few pieces of arugula and one piece of cheese then rolling up. It should stay together but you can also use toothpicks to secure.
  • Lay out on your serving platter and drizzle with a little balsamic drizzle. Serve immediately. Do not plan to make these ahead bc they just don't last that long.
