About

This is a wonderful fresh tasting and relatively light appetizer. The sweetness of the fresh figs works really well with the creaminess of the goats cheese and the saltiness of the prosciutto. Make sure your prosciutto is sliced see through thin so it's not chewy! They were 2 for 99¢ at the local No Frills, so I couldn't resist! I saw this on a show on Food TV a few years ago and they have been in my repertoire ever since. I have adapted it for my taste, of course! Check it out at my blog .
