Anyways, here's an ode to summer fruits and tasty cheeses. A curious and delicious combination I never experimented with much before. Although the more I think about it, just makes sense--brie and jam, tomatoes and mozzarella.
My boss (who you'll hear me mention quite a bit--I steal all her recipes) brought in fresh picked figs and whipped us up a simple salad.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pre-heat oven to 275 degrees.
Slice figs in half. Spread a layer of goat cheese on the open side of the fig and wrap the whole thing in a piece of prosciutto. Warm prosciutto wrapped fig in the oven for just a few minutes, till goat cheese is softened (just a 1-2 minutes).
In a bowl, toss arugula leaves in a olive oil and S+P.
To arrange, place some of the arugula leaves on bowl or plate. Place fig on top and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. It's the perfect combination and would make a great appetizer or snack. (Thanks Karena!)
Had this Watermelon & Feta Salad at an event at work. (I loved the little glasses they were served in...such a fun idea!)
Watermelon, cut into cubes
Feta Cheese crumbles
Fresh Basil cut into strips
a splash of Balsamic Vinegar (optional)
Do you guys have a favorite cheese and fruit combination?
