Figs Wrapped in Basil with Balsamic Vinegar
At the height of summer, it's hard to beat the simplicity of a ripe, sweet fig tucked into a spicy basil leaf.
- 8 fresh Black Mission figs, halved lengthwise
- 16 large fresh basil leaves
- Fig balsamic vinegar, or aged balsamic vinegar, for drizzling
Place each fig half on an upturned basil leaf, cupping leaf around fig. Drizzle each fig with a few drops of vinegar, and serve immediately.
