Sliced pears with goat cheese, cranberries and pistachios is an easy yet impressive appetizer. I was tasked with preparing appetizers for a recent family gathering and this recipe was a definite success. I really wish I had taken a picture of my platter of pears because I promise they looked exactly like the picture (above) in the cookbook. It is that easy ...
2 pears, cored and cut into two dozen slices
1/2 cup goat cheese
2 tablespoons pistachio pieces
2 tablespoons cranberries
1 tablespoon orange or lemon juice
Toss sliced pears in orange or lemon juice to keep from browning. Spread goat cheese on the widest part of each slice and top with some cranberries and pistachio pieces. Alternatively, you can mix goat cheese, cranberries and pistachio pieces in a bowl and spread on each pear slice.
