I made these for a gathering we attended. I love brie, but the boys are not crazy about it so I had to share them otherwise I would have ate the whole plate! I left off the walnuts due to logistics of how it would work with a skewer of food. I loved the flavor combo and how quick and easy it was to prep, plus it added a little healthier twist than a heavy appetizer.
Pear & Brie Cheese Salad Skewers
(Adapted from Walder Wellness)
Approx. 8 ounces brie cheese (~225 grams)
Approx. 2 cups baby arugula
Approx. 1/4 cup raw walnuts, chopped
Balsamic glaze, to drizzle (or balsamic vinegar)
Slice pears into quarters and remove seeds and stem. Cut quarters into roughly 1/2-inch cubes.
Cut brie cheese into similar-sized, 1/2-inch cubes.
TIP: I found that leaving the rind on made the skewers a little less sticky to handle!
Take a small (4-inch) skewer, and thread a piece of pear, a bundle of arugula, and then a piece of cheese onto it. Place skewer on a serving platter and repeat until all cheese and pears are used up.
TIP: fold the arugula in half to make it a smaller bundle and thread the skewer onto the rind part of the cheese!
Gently press a few pieces of chopped walnuts onto the brie cheese so that they stick. Drizzle balsamic glaze overtop of skewers and enjoy!
