Fresh Fig and Prosciutto Salad

I’m so excited to report we finally have a fig tree (the little guy is pictured below)!   I can’t wait till it bears fruit, but many say this could take a few years.  Until then, I will continue to rely on the kindness of my neighbors at the beach, who share their bounty with us each year.   I love fresh figs, and enjoy them on cheese plates, roasted, stuffed, baked in desserts or raw in salads.  Here’s a great recipe for a Fig and Prosciutto Salad.  I love it because it features the fresh fig, and pairs it with greens, meat and cheese that compliment, not overpower it.  It’s just perfect!

If you have a great recipe please share below in the comments, I would love to try it.
