Figs and Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 8 fresh black mission figs, halved lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup plain or lightly-sweetened greek-style yogurt
  • 16 cinnamon-spiced pecan or walnut halves
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk vinegar with sugar and cinnamon. Place fig halves in bowl and gently toss to coat; set aside.
  2. If needed, coat the grill with a little olive oil, then preheat. Grill figs about 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear but figs are still somewhat firm. Transfer to a serving platter. (You can reserve the marinade for another use, if desired).
  3. Allow figs to cool for about 5 minutes, then spoon a bit of yogurt onto the top of each fig half. Top with pecan or walnuts halves and serve.
