Pear & Carrot Curry Appetizers

This is a different and tasty appetizer that goes well with a light white wine.  At Flights & Bites for West Wind Winery I paired it with a Muscat Canelli!  Yum!

1 Pkg Tandoori Masala Naan, Cut in bite size pieces,  Available at Trader Joe's ( It's yellow in color)
1/2 C Mascarpone Cheese
1 C Shredded Carrots, Cut so the pieces are short
1 C Shredded Pear, Cut so the pieces are short
2 T Fresh Italian Parsley or Basil, Roughly Chopped
2 T Cider Vinegar
1 T Curry Powder
2 T Honey
1/2 t Salt
1/2 t Pepper
1/4 C Olive Oil

In a medium size bowl place the vinegar, curry, honey, salt, pepper and olive oil, whisk to blend.  Add carrots, pears and parsley,  mix well.  Place bite size pieces of naan on a plate, top with carrot and pear mixture, then place a dollop of mascarpone cheese on top.  Serve.  Can be topped with a pineapple chip if available in your area, I found them a Trader Joe's
