Ingredients

  • Thyme-Grilled Figs:

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 thyme springs, leaves only
  • 1 pound fresh figs, halved
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • For The Salad:

  • 2 cups arugula
  • 8 slices prosciutto
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic glaze
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to tast

Directions

  1. Mix olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, and thyme together in a bowl; add the figs and stir to coat.
  2. Brush a grill pan with olive oil and heat over medium. Cook figs in a single layer until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. Put arugula into a salad bowl; add figs and prosciutto. Drizzle balsamic glaze and olive oil over the salad; season with pepper. Top the salad with Parmesan cheese to serve.
Mealthy tip:

For a vegan take on this delicious entree, forgo the Parmesan cheese and prosciutto, and switch out the honey for agave nectar. The grilled figs are the stars of this dish after all!

Veganized this dish and loved it. We did a vegan cashew cheese and nutritional yeast mix, and added agave nectar. The grilled figs were amazing. Definitely going to make this again.

I made the grilled figs, but skipped the cheese and prosciutto in the salad. I really love the spicy arugula paired with the figs, it was really good.

I make these whenever we fire up the grill. The sweet and salty flavors are perfect. Be sure to stand there and watch them while they cook so you don't burn them. They don't take long, this recipe is super quick.

Loved the sweet and salty combination in this salad. It was very delicious. I made this for my wife and I on one of our date nights as a starter salad. Would definitely make this again.

Love these thyme-grilled figs, and with the salty prosciutto and peppery arugula they are a winning combination. Will be making this one over and over again. With fresh figs in season I will definitely try with fresh instead of dried as well.
