Fig and Prosciutto Salad

I am a fig girl so this recipe really hit the spot for me. The figs are marinated in a port, honey pepper sauce so you get this bite of sweet, peppery and salty from the prosciutto and then the goat cheese soothes it all and helps blend it together. It's just a heavenly combo.

3 tablesports port
12 mission black figs
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspons pepper

Mix all of this together. Cut the figs in half and place them face down in the port sauce. Let them sit for 2 hours.

Place two thin slices of prosciutto on the plate, place some arugula in the middle of the plate, put toasted walnuts of top of that. Pour some of the marinate on the arugula - it makes a good salad dressing. Put six of the fig halves on each plate and put a little dollop of goat cheese on each one. A soft Gorgonzola cheese would be delish too. Serves six.
