Fresh figs are a delicious warm weather treat but they’re highly perishable so don’t buy them more than a day or two in advance (and be sure to store them in your refrigerator). When you’re ready to use your figs, try them sliced and served on bread with goat cheese, honey, black pepper, and greens for a simple and delicious summer sandwich.
- 1 6-inch baguette, sliced lengthwise and cut in half crosswise
- 3 Ounces goat cheese
- 6 leaves baby spinach (or arugula)
- 2 large (or 4 small) fresh figs
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- Freshly cracked black pepper
Spread the goat cheese on the two sections of baguette and top with spinach leaves.
Gently wash the figs under cold running water and pat them dry. Trim their stems then slice each fig into 3-4 pieces. Lay the slices of fig on top of the greens.
Top the figs with a drizzle of honey and freshly cracked black pepper.
