Mary's Recipe: Super-Easy Fig Appetizer

Admittedly, this one isn’t my recipe.

Thank Utah Style & Design editor Brad Mee for this great idea for figs, along with the rest of the copy in this post:


Contrary to what many people feel, figs are not frightening. There is so much to do with this luscious, exotic fruit. But don’t wait to give them a go. The highly perishable fruit won’t be around long. While in Whole Foods Market this morning, I noticed the fabulous display of fresh figs. Does this give you any ideas? If you need a bit of a nudge, here is an appetizer I recently made with figs – maybe it will inspire you to fashion one of your own.


Begin with goat cheese, fresh mint, fresh figs, and prociutto


Toast slices of rustic Italian bread and top with olive oil.


Spread goat cheese on each bread slice and top with prociutto, a “smashed” fig (releasing the flesh), and chopped mint. Drizzle with olive oil.


Serve on a rusic serving board and enjoy!
