Roasted Fig with Roquefort

True fig lovers will know that the season is fast approaching, and we must say, it’s one of our favorite times of the year.

Most of my Greek friends have a fig tree in their backyard, and would generously load me up all summer long. Fresh, grilled, roasted, or made into a jam  figs are one of the most diverse and delicious summer fruits. 

These simply roasted figs can be served as a canape at your next bbq, or added to your cheese board.

The combination of sweet roasted figs, full bodied French cheese, and the touch of acidy and sweetness from the balsamic, is quite unexpected and refreshing. But if you prefer a mellower cheese like brie - that works too. Or (gasp) no cheese at all, and just enjoy the figs solo.
