Blue Cheese, Honey and Walnut Figs

This super easy, savory appetizer bursts with flavors of fall. The saltiness of the blue cheese complements the sweetness of the ripe homegrown figs finished with a delightful nuttiness of the toasted organic walnuts.

In under 10 minutes you have a sophisticated appetizer that should impress at your next holiday gathering.

6 figs
Blue cheese
Walnuts
Balsamic vinegar for drizzling
Honey for drizzling
Rosemary for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Arrange walnuts on a cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, checking frequently. While walnuts are toasting, chop a small spring of rosemary. Stir together the blue cheese and chopped walnuts. Drizzle mixture with a dash of balsamic vinegar and honey to taste. Spoon onto ripe fig halves and sprinkle with a pinch of chopped rosemary.

Makes 12 fig appetizers.
