Ingredients

4 Bosc pears, washed halved and cored
90 ml (6 tbsp) Ricotta cheese
180 ml (¾ cup) Blue cheese
125 ml (½ cup) sunflower oil
30 ml (2 tbsp) cider vinegar
90 ml (6 tbsp) 35% cream
500 ml (2 cups) mixed baby greens
12 slices prosciutto

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C / 400°F.
  2. Place pears halves, cut side down, in a Pyrex dish. Bake 10 to 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
  3. Scoop out the centre of each pear half and stuff with 125 ml (½ cup) of the Blue cheese.
  4. Place the remaining Blue cheese and all the Fiorella in the food processor and pulse just until blended. Add oil, vinegar and cream and pulse a few more times to combine.
  5. Divide greens on 4 salad plates. On each plate, arrange two pear halves and three prosciutto slices.
  6. Drizzle with dressing and serve.

Tip: Bosc pears are ideal for this type of salad because they retain their shape when baked.
