IMG_7695When I was recently at the beach, reading my Bon Appetit magazine about simple recipes, Editor-in-Chief Adam Rappaport share this recipe! The minutes I saw it, I knew the next time I got my hands on some fresh figs, this was going to HAVE to be made.  Luckily for me, I stumbled into some just a week afterwards at Whole Foods!  The second best part was that I already had plans with my girlfriends that same evening.  It was meant to be. 🙂IMG_7682

I love the lightness of this dish and how you can use a different fruit than just tomatoes!


  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 1 pint ripe fresh figs, quartered
  • Basil leaves, torn
  • Coarsely ground black pepper
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Olive oil (for drizzling)


  • Tear mozzarella into medium pieces and arrange on a platter. Tuck figs around cheese and scatter basil over top. Season with pepper and lots of salt. Drizzle generously with oil.
