Fig and Gorgonzola Bites
5 Figs, cut in half
3 oz. Soft, un-aged Gorgonzola...or your favorite soft blue cheese
4 tablespoons Balsamic Reduction (Try: Tesoro di Modena Organic Balsamic Creme, available at Whole Foods or online)
3 tablespoons Fresh Chopped Mint
Make one first so you can taste it and get the balance just right. Here’s how.
1. Place a knob of gorgonzola on each fig half. Enough to make it’s presence known, but not too much to overpower the fig or to completely cover its pinkish beauty.
2. Drizzle a little balsamic reduction on top.
3. Sprinkle with chopped mint leaves.
4. Serve on a rustic wood cheese board or on a simple white serving plate.
