Recipe: Fresh figs with blue cheese and candied pecans 

Fresh figs with blue cheese and candied pecans 

Ingredients  serves approximately 15, assuming that each guests eats 3 pieces

  • 10 fresh figs: remove bottom/navel and top/stem, then slice remainder of each fruit in to 5 equal slices
  • 1/2 lb. blue cheese (I used Bleu d'Auvergne), left out of fridge for 15-minutes
  • 8oz. chopped candied pecans - I buy mine at Trader Joe's (if you cannot locate "candied" pecans, regular chopped pecans will do)

On a large serving plate/tray of choice, arrange figs side by side.  Top each fig with a 5-finger pinch of blue cheese (approximately 1/2 tablespoon).  Finally, crown each fig with a sprinkle of chopped candied pecans.  Serve immediately and enjoy!
