Manchego Arugula Bresaola Hand Rolls | http://saltandwind.com

This is a long-standing appetizer around my parts. It's super simple to prepare and has a sweet-salty combo that's A+. Bresaola is an air-dried beef that hails from Italy, although many cultures across the Mediterranean and Middle East have similar styles of charcuterie. While I’m a sucker for good cured pork, they always hog the spotlight so I thought I’d feature another equally delicious cured meat. This is also a shoo-in when you have non pork eaters around but still want an elegant small bite to start the meal.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced bresaola

    can substitute Prosciutto or speck

  • 2 ounces baby arugula or other spicy green
  • 3 ounces Membrillo (quince paste)

    or fig jam

  • 3 ounces Manchego cheese

    sliced paper thin

Instructions

To assemble, spread bresaola out on a clean work surface. Place 3 pieces of arugula in the center of the piece, top with a very thin sliver of cheese and a thin slice of quince paste. Roll each bresaola piece up to into a cylinder (or cigar form) to enclose filling.

Place on a serving platter and repeat until all the bresaola is used up. 

Tip

Keep the serving platter in the refrigerator until you have assembled all the rolls so that they stay cool. Can be made up to 4 hours ahead and stored refrigerated in an airtight container.
