Marinated fig salad

2013 seems to be the year of the ever fashionable fig and seeing as though its a VERY hot summer I think its time for a good dose of fresh salad…enjoy!




  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon coarse-grained Dijon mustard
  • 16 fresh figs, halved
  • 1 (8-oz.) package fresh mozzarella cheese slices 
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced Serrano ham or prosciutto, torn into strips


  1. Whisk together first 4 ingredients and salt and pepper to taste in a medium bowl. Stir in figs; let stand 30 minutes.
  2. Arrange mozzarella and ham on 4 salad plates or a large platter. Spoon fig mixture over cheese and ham.
