Bonus Tasty Tuesday Recipe: Don't Let the Fig Bugs Bite Salad

I thought it would be fun to get a little playful with some salad and figs and in the theme of Halloween week- I wanted to make a spooktacularly delicious treat!

1- package of Dried Figs (cut in half and seed removed from one of the halves, cut the deseeded side in half.)

1- 3oz package of Cream Cheese

2 oz of Crumbled Blue Cheese

2 Tbsp of Mayo

1/4 cup of Chopped Pecans

1/4 cup of Milk

Mixed Field Greens, or Butter Lettuce

1- Wedge of Blue Cheese

Fresh Tomatoes

Balsamic Vinaigrette

Disposable Pastry Bag

In a mixing bowl combine cream cheese, blue cheese, seeds from figs and pecans. Mix until smooth, add milk to get a smooth texture

Fill pastry bag with cream cheese mixture.

Place a small amount of mixture on the fig that still has the seeds.

Place the 2 halves on top of the filling to resemble wings.

On a chilled plate, place the greens in the middle and the wedge of blue cheese in the middle of the greens.

Randomly place the Fig Bugs on and around the wedge of cheese and garnish with fresh tomatoes.

Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and serve cold.

*you could also use dates if you do not like figs*

Don't let the Fig Bugs Bite, you bite them.
