Fig & Prosciutto Sandwich

There are so many fruits in season right now but figs should be given special attention as fresh figs only stick around for a couple of weeks while other fruits can be eaten autumn-long. At their ripest, they are perfect for simple desserts – just bake them in the oven with honey and cinnamon and serve with Greek yogurt, throw them into a fruit salad or make a simple tart. However, as a lover of anything sweet&salty, I prefer to eat them in salads and sandwiches with cured meat, salty cheese and bitter greens. Trust me, the combination of flavors is perfection!

 

what you’ll need:

2 slices of bread, toasted

3 fresh figs, sliced thinly

A handful of fresh arugula

4 slices of prosciutto

Fresh spreadable goat cheese, about 3 tbsp

dressing:

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp balsamic vinegar

2 tsp honey

1/2 tbsp mustard

How to:

  1. Put your bread in a toaster or on the grill
  2. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl
  3. Add arugula and mix well
  4. Once the bread pops out, put the salad mixture on one side and spread the goat cheese on the other. Place your fig slices on top of the lettuce followed by the prosciutto
  5. Cover with the slice with goat cheese on it and slice the sandwich into two
