Figs, Prosciutto and Mozzarella Salad

Figs, Prosciutto and Mozzarella Salad

Each year, at the end of the summer, the fig hunting begins. In our area, the figs are damn hard to find, and when I find them, I try to cook them in every possible way until I get tired of them.

Well, this year after trying a delicious tart with goat cheese and figs, I still had a few(obviously), so I decided to make a delicious salad with figs, arugula, prosciutto and mozzarella.

After spending a lot of time in Italy, this salad became one of my favorite. Fresh, full of flavors and easy to make, this combo is a perfect brunch or even a delicious lunch.
