Simple appetizer with an exotic flavor. Carmelized grilled figs work wonderfully with Feta cheese, walnuts and chiffinade mint leaves. Just try to stop eating these things!

"The picture doesn't reflect the actual recipe. It's just of the figs with mint sprigs on top. We developed the recipe after we took the photo but now we are out of figs to do it again!!!! We'll post another photo the next time we make the recipe."

Servings  

Preparation

Brush olive oil on each fig half. Cut feta cheese small enough to fit into half fig. Grill figs on open side on high heat for about 5-6 mins. No need to turn. Figs should be soft but not mushy before removing from heat. Use a spatula to gently remove them from grill. Place cheese pieces into each fig while still hot. Place a bed of greens on each of 4 salad plates. Place two fig halves on each plate. Drizzle extra virgin olive and balsamic vinegar over figs and greens. Sprinkle chiffinade mint over each fig on each plate. Make sure and get a bit of mint with each bite of fig. Enjoy!

To experiment, try a different cheese like brie or nufchatel. Try pecans or almonds instead of walnuts. Try different varieties of figs if you can find them.

Makes a salad look and taste GREAT! Used pecan halves which I had on hand. Refrigerated extra prepared figs. They were delicious cold on my salad the next day. Will try a different cheese next time.
