There are times when we overlook the fact that the simplest recipes, such as this fresh figs and honey dessert. They are often the most elegant and the most fun to make. That certainly is the case with this fresh figs and honey dessert recipe. I can’t tell you where it came from. What I do know is whenever I see fresh figs my mind immediately goes to this recipe. The combination of salty, sweet and nutty flavors with the freshness of the figs cannot be beat.
So there I was in Costco looking for fresh berries, and I saw the carefully packaged fresh figs. I had to have them; first, to make this fresh figs and honey dessert recipe, and secondly to make fig jam (another recipe for another time).
Fresh Figs and Honey Dessert
- Fresh figs
- Toasted walnuts
- Crumbled blue cheese
Notes: I use a good quality honey and blue cheese. It can make all the difference in the over all taste. If you are not a fan of blue cheese you can leave it out or, better yet, use a milder Gorgonzola cheese in its place. The saltiness of the cheese ads allot to this recipe. The number of figs you use will depend on their size. The ones I used were a nice size. So one fig per serving was sufficient.
Now that is as easy as it can get. So, the next time you see fresh figs grab a bunch and have them for this fresh figs and honey dessert. They look beautiful, and they are oh so good, not to mention, good for you.
