Fresh Figs with Boursin
SmartPoints® value per serving
This super easy, super pretty party appetizer would make for a fabulous lunch to look forward to all packed up for the office on a bed of salad greens with extra balsamic in a vinaigrette on the side. It's ready in minutes, offers a serving of an out of the ordinary fruit, and who doesn't love a smooth smear of garlicky, herbed Boursin or Boursin style cheese? The cheesy figs are eye-catching on party picks with cocktails and they could also top a flatbread or thin crust pizza sprinkled with a light covering of melted mozzarella and layered with arugula while still warm. Dramatic, dark Black Mission figs or the green-skinned, deep pink fleshed Calimyrna are the best varieties to use in this recipe for they eye-catching appeal. The more common Brown Turkey figs aren't as pretty, but they are every bit as sweet, so great to use in this recipe, too.
