Bleu Cheese and Hazelnut Figs

There's nothing like fresh figs to make a summer evening a little extra special. These green figs (Adriatic) are from my own yard and I just picked them this morning. Here are several ideas for fresh figs. 

  • Eat them right off the tree!
  • Slice in half, stuff with bleu cheese, wrap in prosciutto and bake in an oven until ham becomes slightly crisp (this is better with black figs).
  • Toss them in your favorite salad.
  • Cut them up and serve over fresh goat cheese; drizzle with honey.
  • Eat with toast and jam.
  • Or try this fun idea:
Cut figs in quarters and place in a shallow bowl
Add 1/4 cup bleu cheese crumbles.
Add 1/2 cup hazelnut halves.
Drizzle with white balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy them while they are in season. They don't last long!
