Whether it’s a wine and cheese picnic, a finger food affair, or as a picnic appetiser, these prosciutto-wrapped figs with goats cheese and crisp arugula are a picnic favourite.
One of our favourite tips for picnics is keeping it simple but that doesn’t mean you can’t be fancy. These delightfully salty, sweet picnic appetisers are about as simple as it gets and will be sure to always impress.
Add these prosciutto rolls to a cheese platter or an antipasto plate. Or, serve as a side to a hearty salad such as our potato and broccoli salad with fresh bread for an easy yet classy picnic.
Much like our grilled pear and blue cheese appetiser, we love the elegance and simplicity of this delicious little picnic starter. Best of all, you can make these prosciutto rolls well in advance – even the day before. They will keep well in a covered container in the fridge.
If figs are not in season, you could use sliced dried figs or rehydrate dried figs. You can also use a jar of fig preserves but look for a quality preserve or spread so it is not too sweet or jammy.
You can also substitute rolled goats cheese with spreadable goats cheese.
