Fig, Gorgonzola and Arugula Crostini

Here, sweet figs are the perfect foil for rich and creamy Gorgonzola cheese, while arugula adds a peppery bite.

Ingredients:

  • 1 thin French baguette
  • 4 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 lb. Gorgonzola cheese
  • 8 figs, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup baby arugula leaves
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

Position a rack in the upper third of an oven and preheat the broiler.

Cut the bread on the diagonal into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Arrange on a baking sheet and drizzle with 2 Tbs. of the olive oil. Broil, turning once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.

Spread the cheese on the crostini, dividing evenly. Top each with a few fig slices and some arugula. Drizzle with the remaining 2 Tbs. olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Serves 8.
