Prep Time
Cook Time
This easy and elegant tartine features some of the season’s finest flavors. Enjoy this open-faced sandwich as a meal in itself, or make miniature versions using your favorite baguette. Simply toast the bread, spread with tangy fromage blanc, and top with delicate spring pea shoots and thinly shaved USA Pears gathered into pretty curls. Developed by Hilary Finch Hutler of for USA Pears
  • 4 slices of your favorite artisanal bread, about ¾ inch thick
  • 8 ounces fromage blanc goat cheese (or other spreadable goat cheese)
  • 1 cup (gently packed) pea shoots or other delicate spring greens
  • 2 firm USA Pears, such as Bosc or Anjou, cut from the core and very thinly sliced on a mandoline
  • olive oil, for drizzling
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Toast the bread until it begins to lightly brown on the edges and spread each slice with a generous layer of the fromage blanc. Next, top each toast with a small handful of loosely gathered pea shoots. Follow the pea shoots with the thinly sliced pears, curling or overlapping them in an attractive way. Lastly, drizzle the toasts with olive oil and sprinkle with just a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer the Tartine with Shaved Pears to a platter and serve immediately.
