Goat Cheese & Fig Prosciutto Rolls

2 T. extra virgin olive oil

2 tsp. grated lemon zest

1 T. fresh lemon juice

6 ounces soft goat cheese, at room temperature

2 cloves garlic, peeled and pressed through a garlic press (or finely minced)

12 slices (not paper-thin) prosciutto, halved crosswise

½ C. fig preserves

½ bunch arugula, trimmed

Freshly ground black pepper


In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon zest and lemon juice. Set aside. In another bowl, mix the goat cheese and garlic together until well blended. Set aside. Spread a layer of the goat cheese mixture on each piece of prosciutto, then spread a layer of fig preserves over the goat cheese and top with a few arugula leaves to cover the preserves. Drizzle some of the vinaigrette down the length of the prosciutto and add a light sprinkle of ground black pepper. Roll the prosciutto up around the filling and arrange on a platter, seam side down. Garnish with a slice of lemon if you wish.
