  • Recipe Description:

    Sounds like a fancy gourmet option, but it's really a very quick snack that I whipped up with some fresh figs. All kinds of flavors are going on here: sweet, spicy, tangy, savory and fresh. Real ingredients paired together in a delicious way.

    Recipe Ingredients:

  • 8 fresh Black Mission Figs
  • 2 ounces grass-fed cheddar cheese*
  • 2 teaspoons cold-pressed olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 10 fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • Unrefined sea salt and pepper
  • Recipe Instructions:

    Cut figs lengthwise and arrange in a small baking dish. Cut cheese into 16 equal squares and stuff into the middle of each fig half.

    In a small bowl whisk together honey, vinegar and oil.

    Drizzle the oil mixture over the figs. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

    Place under a broiler for 3-5 minutes or until cheese has browned slightly and is melted.

    Garnish with chopped mint leaves.

    * I happen to like cheddar in these, but they are also great with cream cheese, Goat cheese, blue cheese and Gruyere. Experiment with your favorites!
