Sweet-tangy balsamic vinegar reduces to a syrupy glaze that glistens atop this simple yet elegant first course.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 8 minutes). Cool.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto; sauté 3 minutes or until lightly browned.

Step 3

Arrange 4 fig halves on each of 6 salad plates. Divide prosciutto evenly over servings. Sprinkle each serving with 2 tablespoons cheese; drizzle with 2 teaspoons balsamic reduction. Serve immediately.

Yummy and easy

Very easy to make, delicious to eat.  Made it as a last minute thing for a get together.  Could probably cut the balsamic vinegar drizzle mixture in half - did not need as much as the recipe made.

Extremely good-- but I substituted crumbled goat cheese for the gorgonzola, and didn't heat up the prosciutto.
