Figs and Prosciutto

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

One of the greatest first courses in summertime—ideally enjoyed on a shaded patio—is a plate of ripe, never-refrigerated figs, halved or quartered, cloaked with prosciutto di Parma, and finished with a few torn mint leaves and a generous drizzle of fruity olive oil, to be sopped up with some crusty bread.

Yield: Serves 6

INGREDIENTS
  • 8 slices prosciutto di Parma, each sliced lengthwise into 3 strips
  • 12 ripe figs, halved lengthwise
  • A few mint leaves
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 loaf crusty bread

Directions

Loosely wrap a piece of prosciutto around each fig half and arrange on a platter. Tear a few mint leaves over the top and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with crusty bread.

Notes

To Drink: A lively, fresh white wine such as Arneis (Cerrito)
