Pomegranate seeds offset the creamy goat cheese and honeysweet pears. This simple dish is ideal for breakfast, a snack, or dessert.


  • 2 ounces fresh goat cheese (about ½ cup)

  • 4 firm-ripe pears, such as Bartlett or Bosc, halved lengthwise

  • Honey, for drizzling

  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds (from ½ large pomegranate)


  1. Stir goat cheese in a small bowl until smooth. Core pear halves with a melon baller or small spoon and fill each cavity with 1 tablespoon cheese. (Pears can then be sliced again into smaller wedges, if desired.) Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds.
