Directions

YOUR TURN TO CREATE

For The Figs
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Arrange figs halves cut side up on a sheet tray. Using a pastry brush, brush a generous layer of balsamic over each half.
  • Top each fig half with a heaping teaspoon of Boursin Garlic & Fine Herb Cheese, pressing gently so it flattens slightly over the surface of the figs. Transfer figs to the oven, roast for 20 minutes.
  • If using prosciutto, place the slices on the same sheet tray (or a different sheet tray if you don’t have room) once the figs are 10 minutes into their cooking.
For the Dressing
  • Mix olive oil, reserved balsamic, lemon juice and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Set aside until ready to serve.
Combine and Serve
  • Rip the mint leaves in pieces, toss with greens and the dressing in a large bowl. Transfer to a platter.
  • When the figs have finished cooking, using tongs gently place each fig on top of the greens. Crumble prosciutto (if using) over the top and serve.
  • Enjoy!
