Here is a quick recipe for fresh figs. They are really yummy and good for you too. I think they'd go great with a nice glass of Riesling wine, sitting on the deck on a beautiful summer's evening.
If you've never tasted fresh figs you don't know what you are missing. They are delicate in flavor and texture and oh so delicious. Easily bruised, handle gently.
Fresh Figs (as many as you want)
Goat Cheese (enough to cover the halved figs)
Balsamic Vinegar (just a drizzle over the figs)
Chopped Pecans (just enough)
Slice the figs in half. Mix all ingredients together except figs and vinegar. Top figs with mixture and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Broil until cheese gets bubbly. Serve with wine and chill out!
