- Make a cream cheese spread by mixing sour cream with cream cheese, the zest of lemon or orange and a small handful of chopped herbs. Season with salt and pepper and chill.
- Wrap blanched asparagus tips in small pieces of cooked bacon, and secure with a toothpick. You could also wrap fresh asparagus with raw bacon and grill or barbecue them.
- To serve, cut small pears into bite-sized rounds, add a dollop of cream cheese, spread and top with an asparagus roll.
