Recipe Box, Savory Salad Flatbread

Have you ever seen this fruit paste at the store?


I recently tried it on a flatbread with bacon and bleu cheese


It makes it so easy to get that fresh fruit flavor without peeling, chopping, slicing, just spread it on


Sprinkle cheese over top


Add cooked bacon pieces and Parmesan cheese

    Hi Jenna, I haven’t seen fruit paste! Did you find it at Publix? Is it with the jams/jellies or in the produce section? We love the combo of pear, bacon and blue cheese and I like the idea of having my pizza and salad too 🙂

    • Thanks Mary, I meant to source where I got it, I did get it at Publix and it’s in the deli section where they display gourmet crackers, and fig jam- near the specialty meats & cheese case. I hope you can find it, there are other fruit paste flavors too. Happy weekend!

    • Thanks Emily, I got it at Publix in the deli section where there are gourmet crackers and other spreads. There are lots of flavors, so ask if you don’t see it- >
