Begin your party casually by offering this appetizer "help yourself" style. Or, make up single-serving plates and present as a first course at the table.

How to Make It

Step 1

Sauté shallot in hot oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Add cherries (and any liquid in package) and next 5 ingredients. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes or until thickened. Let stand 10 minutes.

Step 2

Divide arugula among toasted bread slices. Top each with cherry mixture and 1 blue cheese slice. Garnish, if desired.

Step 3

*Manchego or goat cheese may be substituted.
