Blue Cheese and Honey Figs
Fresh figs make me all kinds of giddy and happy. Since they are seasonal, I don’t get to eat them as often as I would like. I usually have to wait well into Summer to enjoy my favorite fruit so imagine my surprise and delight when my grocery store had figs already, in late April. I may have squealed aloud in the store – whoops.
I love figs for their sweetness, the quick shot of fiber, high potassium levels, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, skin healing properties, etc. Read this little post about all the awesome goodness of the fig. I knew they were healthy but didn’t realize how healthy until I read up on them.
My favorite fig treat is simple but oh so decadent. Just wash gently, slice into quarters, sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles and drizzle with some organic honey.
