A delicious and elegant appetizer made with prosciutto, goat cheese, fig preserves, arugula and lemon.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
6 ounces soft goat cheese, at room temperature
2 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed through a garlic press (or finely minced)
12 slices (not paper-thin) prosciutto, halved crosswise
½ cup fig preserves
½ bunch arugula, trimmed
Freshly ground black pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon zest and lemon juice. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix the goat cheese and garlic together until well blended. Set aside.
Spread a layer of the goat cheese mixture on each piece of prosciutto, then spread a layer of fig preserves over the goat cheese and top with a few arugula leaves to cover the preserves. Drizzle some of the vinaigrette down the length of the prosciutto and add a light sprinkle of ground black pepper.
Roll the prosciutto up around the filling and arrange on a platter, seam side down. Garnish with a slice of lemon if you wish.
