Halved figs on a block of French feta cheese, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with mint leaves and ground black pepper couldn't be easier to make. The feta's saltiness balances the figs' sweetness, while the mint gives an exhilarating bite.

Cook's Notes

French feta is creamier, milder, and less salty than the Greek version. Arrange this salad on a platter, and let your guests serve themselves.
