This is a super easy, assemble and go appetizer. In this photo, it’s paired down but the other ingredients add excellent texture and flavor.

Version 1
1 bosc pear, ripe but firm
16 pieces of arugula
8 strips of shaved Parmesan
8 slices bresaola (cured, dried beef)

Slice the pear into 8 pieces, avoiding seeds. Lay a strip of cheese on the pear then top it with 2 leaves of arugula. Wrap the bresaola around the pear, cheese and arugula. Pin in place with a toothpick. Serve.

Version 2
8 pitted dates
1/3 c port wine
8 slices bresaola (cured, dried beef)
1/4 c Mascarpone

Place the dates in a small mixing bowl. Pour the port over the dates and let sit for at least 1 hour.
Gently squeeze the port out of the dates. Discard the port. Spoon the Mascarpone into the moist date. Wrap a strip of bresaola around the date and secure with a toothpick. Serve.
