Roasted Figs and Goat Cheese with Rosemary Honey Balsamic Dressing
There is NO better way to enjoy fresh figs than roasted, warm, straight out of the oven with melted goat cheese and a sweet, savory, and tangy dressing made from rosemary, honey, and balsamic vinegar spread over crostini. DELICIOUS!
In a small bowl, whisk together chopped rosemary (1 tablespoon), olive oil (2 tablespoons), balsamic vinegar (2 tablespoons), honey (1 tablespoon), and salt to taste.
In a small baking dish, arrange figs cut side up.
Crumble goat cheese on top of the figs (I usually use a fork or knife to get chunks off the goat cheese log right over the baking dish, since it's so soft and difficult to crumble).
Drizzle the dressing evenly on top of the figs.
Roast in oven for 15 minutes, or until figs have reached the desired tenderness/are starting to brown. (if they are taking a while to brown, you can finish them under the broiler).
Serve figs and goat cheese on crostini drizzled with extra dressing from the bottom of the baking dish.
Depending on the kinds of figs you use, you may want to use more or less honey. Green figs tend to be more tart, so you may want more, whereas dark colored figs tend to be naturally very sweet.
