Figs with Blue Cheese, Honey and Pistachios – sounds strange right? Who knew this mish-mash of ingredients could actually come together nicely? But somehow it does. I saw this recipe somewhere once and knew it sounded so strange it had to be good. Best to use a really strong blue cheese though – like Roquefort – it accentuates the flavors of the other ingredients more than a light and bland taste blue cheese. So simple to make and makes for a presentable and unique appetizer or snack. Take one bite….strange…give it another shot…hmmm…delicious.
I didn’t measure out any of the ingredients, just halved the figs, layered them with some blue cheese, crushed pistachios and drizzled with honey.
