Proscuitto, Figs, Arugula and Buffalo Mozzarella

Yield: enough for 8 guests as an hors d’oeuvre

Why cook when your ingredients on their own are so wonderful and when they work so well with wine?

These are great ingredients at their best. Find your best local market and get the best ingredients you can afford. All you have to do is place these ingredients on a platter, show them how to “roll their own” and let your guests help themselves.

  • 16 slices Prosciutto, very thinly sliced
  • 1 pound Buffalo Mozzarella, cut in quarters and then sliced
  • 1 bag Baby Arugula (you can find this in most produce departments)
  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 16 each Figs (Fresh or Dried Black Figs), quartered

Method for rolling:

  1. Cut the prosciutto slice in fourths. Place 2 leaves of arugula on the prosciutto.
  2. Place 1 piece of mozzarella and one piece of the fig. Roll the prosciutto around the entire package, drizzle with olive oil and enjoy!
  3. You can also just layer these on to any crisp or soft bread slice for an excellent bruschetta.
