"Proscuitto, in addition to fresh, sweet corn, is the shining star of these little za’s. I’m lucky that where I live we have access to the really good stuff: Jersey Fresh sweet white corn, freshly made mozzarella and salty imported prosciutto. Because we’re working with such simple ingredients here, it really does matter that you use the best possible quality you can find. My food philosophy has always revolved around using great ingredients and not overcomplicating things, and my trip to Italy has only strengthened that belief. The food there is dead simple, but the quality of ingredients and the attention to good technique are what make it so special." - Nicole Gaffney of Coley Cooks food blog.Find her original recipe here.

A great sandwich has a fine balance between salty and sweet. In this sandwich, by pickling the figs you're adding a bit of both sensations. The whole package is rounded out by a meat no one can argue with — proscuitto — and ricotta cheese for a subtle addition of texture and flavor. Picked figs can be kept for any rainy day, but they make an excellent addition to a sandwich like this.
