Prosciutto-wrapped figs take just a few minutes to crisp up in the oven, plus they elevate this simple yet elegant salad. Small figs work best, but if you can find only large ones, cut them into quarters. Balsamic dressing brings out the sweetness of the figs.

Ingredients

Arugula Salad:
  • 3 prosciutto
  • 4 small figs halved lengthwise
  • 2 cups lightly packed baby arugula
  • 1 cup thinly sliced cored trimmed fennel
  • 15 g Parmesan cheese shaved
Balsamic Dressing:
  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid honey
  • pinch each salt and pepper

Method

Balsamic Dressing: In small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, honey, salt and pepper. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days; shake or whisk before using.)

Arugula Salad: Slice prosciutto lengthwise into 1-inch (2.5 cm) wide strips. Wrap 1 strip around each fig half. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Brush figs with 2 tsp of the dressing. Place, cut side up, on greased foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Broil until prosciutto is crisp and golden, 2 to 3 minutes.

In bowl, toss together arugula, fennel and remaining dressing. Top with figs and Parmesan.
