Pear Slices with Goat Cheese, Pistachios, and Pink Peppercorn

Prep Time
Pear Slices with Goat Cheese are garnished with Pistachios and Pink Peppercorn in this delightfully pleasing hors d’oeuvres.
  • 4 ounces fresh goat cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 3 to 5 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pistachios
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh chives
  • 2 teaspoons ground pink peppercorns, plus more for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Fruit Fresh® Produce Protector
  • 2 ripe Green Bartlett USA Pears

With an electric mixer or a sturdy fork, mix the goat cheese with enough cream to get a smooth spread. Mix in about half of the pistachios, the chives, ground pink peppercorns, orange zest, and salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until served, up to 3 days.

Just before serving, mix the Fruit Fresh with 3 tablespoons water. Halve the pears, scoop out the core, trim the stems and cut lengthwise into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Brush or toss the slices with the Fruit Fresh mixture.

Arrange the pear slices on a serving platter and put a dollop of the goat cheese mixture on the wide end of each. Sprinkle with more of the pistachios and ground pink peppercorn. Serve immediately.
