Prosciutto, Pear, and Blue Cheese Sandwich

The Prosciutto, Pear, and Blue Cheese sandwich recipe as found in the October issue of Cooking Light is FABULOUS.  I have probably made this sandwich five times in the last couple weeks.  It is fast and easy and so delicious (and only 324 calories).  I LOVE all the flavors together.  So here you go - a new recipe to add to your collection.  Give it a try!

8 slices 100% multigrain bread
1 T butter, softened
3 cups arugula
1 medium shallot, thinly sliced
1 T olive oil
2 t red wine vinegar
2 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto
1 ripe pear, cored and thinly sliced
2 ounces blue cheese, sliced

1.  Toast and butter bread.
2.  Combine arugula and shallot in medium bowl.  Add oil and vinegar and toss to coat.  Divide evenly among 4 bread slices, buttered side up.
3.  Top evenly with prosciutto.  Divide pear slices and cheese evenly among sandwiches.  Top each sandwich with 1 bread slice, buttered side down.

Happy Cooking!
