Ingredients

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 ounces very thin slices prosciutto, cut into 1/8-inch-wide strips
12 large dark-skinned fresh figs, halved (such as Black Mission, Celeste, or Brown Turkey, about 1 pound)
3/4 cup (3 ounces) crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

How to Make It

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 8 minutes). Cool.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto; sauté 3 minutes or until lightly browned.
Arrange 4 fig halves on each of 6 salad plates. Divide prosciutto evenly over servings. Sprinkle each serving with 2 tablespoons cheese; drizzle with 2 teaspoons balsamic reduction. Serve immediately.
