Slices of salty, pungent blue cheese are naturally suited for sweet figs, cantaloupe, and generous drizzles of honey. Serve a platter as an easy cheese course at the end of a meal.


  • 6 to 8 slices (1/4 inch thick) blue cheese

  • 1 pint fresh Black Mission or Brown Turkey figs, halved

  • 1 cantaloupe, cut into 1-inch wedges

  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted

  • Best-quality honey, for drizzling


  1. Arrange cheese slices on a serving platter, and top with figs and melon wedges. Sprinkle with almonds, and drizzle with honey.
