Fresh Figs with Rosemary Goat Cheese (Makes 1-3/4 cup)


In a bowl whisk together all ingredients except figs until smooth and season with salt and pepper. Rosemary goat cheese may be made one day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring goat cheese to room temperature before serving. Mound goat cheese in center of platter. Halve figs and arrange around goat cheese for dipping. (Epicurious Food - Gourmet Magazine, August 1997). Note - if figs are not available, this is also quite good with pears.
