Pears and Cheese

This post originally appeared on By Hook or By Cook.

I'm not usually a big fan of salty cheeses with fruit. No slice of cheddar on my apple pie, thank you very much! I tried this combination accidentally one day while I was having a snack, and WOW! I may just have to rethink that apple pie thing.

· Arrange slices of cheese atop slices of pear.
· Enjoy the symphony of flavors.

Ingredient note: I found both the dried pears and the cheese at Trader Joe's. If you're not able to find these particular ingredients, however, you can substitute another semi-soft cheese and dry your own pears. Colorado State University has a nice drying primer available here.
