If pear and cheese sounds like the ideal match to you, these individual pear, bresaola and blue cheese galettes are the way to go. A really simple pear compote is delicious with thick yogurt and granola, while the fruit’s crisp flesh adds crunch to salads and picnic-perfect lettuce rolls filled with cucumber and carrot.
