Pear and Blue Cheese Flatbread Course: Appetizers, Side Dishes
Diet: Vegetarian

Serve as an appetizer course, or with a hearty bowl of soup on a chilly evening. The combination of pears with walnuts and blue cheese is a classic! Substitute fresh spinach for the arugula if you prefer.



  • 4 small flatbreads or 2 lavash, cut in quarters or halves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pear, cored and thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2 cups arugula, washed
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Black pepper


1. Heat the oven to 450°F. Place the flatbread or lavash pieces on a large sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil. Spread the pear slices evenly on top, sprinkle with blue cheese, sage and walnuts.

2. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes until the cheese is bubbly. Remove from the oven.

3. While the flatbreads are baking, toss the arugula with the balsamic vinegar.

4. Top the hot flatbreads with the dressed greens, sprinkle with black pepper and serve.
