Pineapple Goat Cheese Prosciutto Wraps

While I loved “Meatless May” ¬†I am very excited to re-introduce meat to the blog¬†now that it is June!

The idea for this recipe came from a combination of my favorite pizza in Oklahoma and Pinterest. ¬†I saw a pin for avocado with goat cheese wrapped in prosciutto, then the following day I had a slice of ¬†“Maui Magic” from Hideaway Pizza in OKC which combines pineapple, mandarin oranges and Canadian bacon, and that’s how the Pineapple Goat Cheese Prosciutto wraps were born!

I decided to pair the delicious wraps with a Honey Lime Mint Glaze to give it that extra fresh, light, summer flavor!

Ingredients (makes 15 wraps)

  • 1/2 fresh pineapple (cubed)
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 3 oz prosciutto (sliced)

Honey Lime Mint Glaze (makes app 3/4 cup)

  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp fresh mint (finely chopped)

Start by slicing the prosciutto and cutting up the pineapple.  Next, take a small piece of goat cheese and place on a cube of pineapple.

Then wrap the prosciutto around the pineapple and goat cheese.

And repeat 14 times.

Next, make the glaze by whisking together the 4 ingredients.

Drizzle the glaze over the wraps or serve on the side for guests to pour on their own.

♣ Vegetarian Option: Substitute the prosciutto with Veggie Bacon.

  • Vegan Option: ¬†The glaze can be made vegan by substituting the Honey with Agave Nectar and poured over pineapple cubes, omitting the cheese and prosciutto.

♦ Gluten Free Option: This recipe is gluten-free.
