Fresh Figs with Goat Cheese & Prosciutto (Gluten & Grain Free) On A Cutting Board

I love fig season and try to make the most out of it! They’re wonderful to use both for savory and sweet purposes and really easy to incorporate in your cooking and baking. Figs can easily lift a quite bland and boring dish and make it exciting and delicious. One of my favorite ways of to combine figs is with cheese. The combination of sweet and savory creates a wonderful combinations just melting in your mouth. This one is no exception! The combination of fresh juicy figs together with the tangy goat cheese and salty prosciutto is amazing. You have a wonderful mix of tastes and textures that create the perfect bite that will melt in your mouth. I also love to add some fresh basil and thick balsamic vinegar or honey on top. An appetizer/snack should according to me not be too heavy. It should be something light and easy, just to get your appetite going. Thats why I love to add some fresh and light ingredients when including cheese and charcuteries. This appetizer with fresh and light figs with the rich and savory goat cheese and salty prosciutto has just the right balance of freshness yet complex and heavier tastes from the goat cheese and prosciutto.

A few tips:

  • Use ripe and juicy figs to make these bites as delicious as possible. You want them to be ripe and sweet but still not too soft.
  • Use good quality goat cheese and prosciutto. It really makes the biggest difference! This dish only includes four main ingredients hence you want them to be of high quality and taste well.
  • I combined the goat cheese with Creme Fraiche, but you can also use plain yogurt or greek yogurt. You can also adjust the amount of Creme Fraiche depending on how thick/thin you prefer your goat cheese cream.
  • You can prepare the goat cheese cream in advance, but leave the rest until ready to serve. It really only takes five minutes to put these fig bites together.
  • You can top these fresh fig bites with thick balsamic vinegar, honey and nuts if you like
