Fresh Fig Bites with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto

Fresh Fig Bites with Goat Cheese and Prosciutto


Ingredients

  • 6 Fresh California Figs, sliced in half
  • 1 Tbsp Honey, divided
  • 2 Tbsp Goat Cheese, divided
  • 12 Baby Arugula Leaves
  • 3 slices Prosciutto, cut lengthwise then in half to make 12 pieces

Directions

1.) Cut a slit lengthwise with a small sharp knife on flesh side of each fig half.
2.) Spoon or brush 1/4 tsp. of honey onto each fig half.
3.) Press 1/2 tsp. of goat cheese into slit of each fig.
4.) Wrap each fig with an arugula leaf and a strip of prosciutto. Arrange on a small platter lined with more arugula; add a turn of freshly ground black pepper, if desired, and serve.

HELPFUL TIPS:
Fig bites should be prepared no more than 1 hour before serving to prevent from becoming too soft. Pairs well with a nice Pinot Grigio wine.
