Prosciutto Wrapped Figs and Feta Salad with Balsamic Drizzle Recipe has all the WOW-factors!
Omg. I love fresh Figs and sometimes they are not so easy to find so if you have trouble finding them at the grocery store (I really like the ones at Trader Joes when they have them) then the soft-dried variety will work just as well.
It’s a fairly easy recipe to make- if you are preparing to make this for a special dinner and want to be a step ahead then prosciutto wrap the figs, keep them airtight in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve the salad course. Then, it’s a quick finish by place the mixed greens on serving plates, arranging the wrapped figs, sprinkling with feta cheese, and adding a drizzle of balsamic glaze!
Ingredients in our Prosciutto Wrapped Figs and Feta Salad with Balsamic Drizzle Recipe:
• Prosciutto- is a sweet, delicate ham. The word is the Italian for ham, but it is widely used to describe various seasoned and cured air-dried hams. ‘Prosciutto cotto’ is cooked and ‘prosciutto crudo’ is raw, air-dried pork (although safe and ready to eat thanks to the curing process).
• Figs- are high in natural sugars, minerals and soluble fibre. Figs are rich in minerals including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and copper and are a good source of antioxidant vitamins A and K that contribute to health and wellness.
• Salad greens- contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, beta-carotene, calcium, folate, fiber, and phytonutrients. Leafy vegetables are a good choice for a healthful diet because they do not contain cholesterol and are naturally low in calories and sodium.
• Balsamic Vinegar/Drizzle- is a safe food additive that contains no fat and very little natural sugar. It’s been proven effective to lower cholesterol and stabilize blood pressure. Some research suggests it can also work as an appetite suppressant, and it contains strains of probiotic bacteria.
• Feta Cheese- Feta is a brined, white cheese with a soft and creamy texture. Compared to other cheeses, it’s low in calories and fat. It also contains a high amount of B vitamins, phosphorus and calcium, which can benefit bone health. Additionally, feta contains beneficial bacteria and fatty acids.
