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.

figs1-2

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

figs1-3

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!
