fresh fig tartine

You really can't go wrong with fresh figs. Now that they are available, I urge you to get as many boxes as you can carry and devour every last one. They are that good.

This is a nice way to compliment their sticky sweetness. The cottage cheese lends a salty, sour element that works really well with the fig.

Serves One

  • 2 fresh figs, sliced
  • Bread of your choice (I have a nice hearty fruit and nut loaf)
  • Cottage cheese
  1. Spread cottage cheese on bread slices. Place fig slices on top.
