This dish epitomizes the fresh tastes of summer. Make sure to use good quality honey which you can find at a farmers market; it is far superior in taste to the store-bought generic kind.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup white Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 12 slices prosciutto
  • 1 bag or 1 bunch fresh, rinsed and dried Arugula, roughly chopped
  • 12 fresh figs
  • 1/3 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 3 tablespoons shelled sunflower seeds, lightly toasted

Directions

  1. Put honey into a microwave safe bowl for a few seconds to warm and temporarily thin consistency. Remove, add the vinegar, pepper and a sprinkle of salt and whisk vigorously while slowly pouring in the oil.
  2. Starting at the end with the stem, cut the fig with a sharp knife into quarters. Set aside.
  3. Arrange 2 prosciutto slices, flat, onto six plates. Divide the arugula evenly between the plates and then place 8 fig quarters over the greens.
  4. Crumble goat cheese over the salads and then sprinkle with the sunflower seeds. Drizzle with the honey vinaigrette and sprinkle with salt.
