Ingredients

How to make it

  • Simmer balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan 5-7 minutes or until vinegar is reduced by half.
  • Press a small quantity of goat cheese into the sliced side of the fig half. Wrap a very thin slice of ham around the middle of the fig so that the stem and lower portion of the fig so that the flat front is smooth for grilling.
  • Heat a cast-iron grill on the stove or barbecue until very hot (I sometimes use my KRUPS panini machine). Brush the face of the fig slightly with olive oil. Lay the figs face down on the grill for 20 seconds, rotate 45 degrees and cook for 20 seconds more. Turn the figs over and cook until warmed, about 1 minute.
  • Presentation:
  • Place baby lettuce in the center of an individual or large platter. Arrange figs around the lettuce, grilled side up. Drizzle balsamic vinegar reduction over figs and around plate. Finish presentation with a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds and toasted walnuts.

    I picked fresh Figs from my garden yesterday, joined with the Humbolt Fog I could not resist @ Market, to exclaim; Ladies you may have my chocolate. It is 5a.m. Hmm... can one eat too many figs or too much Humbolt Fog?..I think not.
