Foodie Friday: Balsamic Pear Nachos


Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl and Jess from Hello to Fit.  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

So today our theme is nachos and while I love traditional nachos just as much as the next person, I haven’t really been able to enjoy them like I used to.  Ever since discovering that I am histamine intolerant, I’ve had to cut out a lot of my favorite foods which includes all of the yummy ingredients you’d put on nachos….like tomatoes.

Since I felt it would be just plain wrong to make nachos without tomatoes and all that delicious salsa goodness, I decided to go a different route and make them sweet instead of savory.  Yes, I said sweet nachos….of the sweet balsamic and sliced pear variety.

These sliced pears are topped with cinnamon pecan chèvre (goat cheese), pomegranate seeds, chopped pecans and a seriously delicious drizzle of balsamic glaze.

The best part about this pear nacho platter is that it’s perfect for a party or even shared as a fancy snack (while you’re sipping some white wine, of course), but it’s super simple to make!

In the time it takes you to slice up a pear, plate and sprinkle with all the yummy goodness, you have a snack that’s fit for a queen…or king….or really hungry person 😉

Ps.  Balsamic and goat cheese technically aren’t low histamine but for the sake of living and creating new recipes, I had to draw the line somewhere!
