    I may a huge fan of figs and basil (separately). I like the tart, sweet, slight bitter combo this makes. To change things up, I used my regular snack/lunch of fresh mozerella slices, genovese basil leaves, fresh tomato slices, drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I placed a slice of fig on each tomato slice. Really added the right amount of sweetness to balance the whole thing.
