The combination of fresh figs, prosciutto, Gorgonzola cheese and walnuts is exceptionally good.

Ingredients

8-- medium to large-sized fresh figs
16slices prosciutto
4ounces Gorgonzola cheese
32-- California walnut halves, toasted

Instructions

  1. Cut the tips off the figs and quarter lengthwise.
  2. Cut each piece of prosciutto in half, lengthwise.
  3. Wrap a piece of prosciutto around the bottom each fig quarter so that the fig is nestled in the prosciutto.
  4. Spread 1 teaspoon of Gorgonzola over each fig and top each with a toasted walnut half.
  5. Serve at room temperature as an hors d’oeuvre or on a bed of baby arugula and drizzle with aged balsamic as a starter.
