Autumn salad with figs, raw ham, goat cheese and hazelnuts

Let’s have a bite of Autumn!

It’s time to play with seasonal ingredients and warm, intense flavours in this time of the year. This “salad” is a variation on the Italian classic “Prosciutto e Fichi”: we added hazelnuts to give  the dish a crunchy texture and creamy goat cheese. It’s a last minute appetizer, fancy but easy to prepare and most of all…delicious!

fichi e prosciutto 1

For 4 persons

4 black figs

8 slices of raw ham

wild salad

edible flowers

fresh goat cheese

honey

peeled hazelnuts

salt & pepper

Extra virgin olive oil

Wash and prepare all the ingredients: cut the hazelnuts, figs and the prosciutto slices. In a bowl, mix goat cheese and honey until creamy and smooth, you will use this mixture to make small “quenelles” to finish the salad simply using two tea spoons.

Put the wild salad on the serving plates, trying to make a nice background for all the other ingredients. Then add ham, figs (we suggest to season them with some honey as well ;)) flowers and the small goat cheese quenelles. Complete the salad with the hazelnuts and season with salt, pepper and olive oil. Serve with warm bread and…enjoy!
