Prosciutto Wrapped Parmesan, Pears, and Greens – A slice of prosciutto rolled around a bunch of mixed greens that has been tossed in a light honey-dijon vinaigrette, layered with fresh pears and parmesan cheese slices. Think of it as salad in finger food form.Now that the holidays are upon us, have you noticed your calendar getting a bit fuller? Have the party invitations started to arrive? Planning your holiday meals? I know we’re still early in November, but with how fast this year has flown buy, we’ll be making our 2016 resolutions in no time.

We have made the assumption you’ve got your main course decided upon, wink wink. But we have prepared appetizers, side dishes, and desserts that are guaranteed to make you wish the holidays were already here.My offering to this feast is an appetizer, (that I personally ate as a meal, but that’s an entirely different story). I gently tossed greens in a very basic vinaigrette and placed a slice of pear and parmesan cheese in the center and then rolled all those delicious items in one heavenly slice of prosciutto. Some of the stems on the greens were longer than others, so after I rolled them up, I just snipped the excess stem right off.
These are quick to make and utterly delicious that you’ll be tempted to eat them all before you get the platter out to your guests.
