Fig & Salami Bruschetta for Progressive Eats

By: The Food Hunter

I'm excited to share that I'm taking part in this month's Progressive Eats dinner. What is Progressive Eats? Well it's a virtual version of a progressive dinner. A different topic is chosen each month and members share theme specific recipes on their sites for you to enjoy.

This month we are focusing on figs! Figs seem to be one of those foods that people either love or hate. I happen to be a person that LOVES them. I saw the recipe below on FoodandWine and thought it would be a perfect addition to this month's Progressive Eats dinner. Be sure to check below for all the other delicious fig recipes we are serving.

Fig & Salami Bruschetta

4 thin slices of bread
1/2 cup ricotta
12 slices fennel salami, or your favorite
4 Black Mission figs, halved or quartered
sea salt
Black pepper
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling

Toast the bread slices until they're crispy on the edges and lightly golden brown. Drizzle the surface of each piece with olive oil and season with salt.

Spread each toasted slice with 2 tablespoons of ricotta, and top with 2 or 3 fig halves. Tuck 3 slices of the salami between the figs on each one. Season sea salt and freshly and cracked black pepper. Drizzle with olive oil just before serving.

Welcome to Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a Progressive Dinner Party. Each recipe in our menu this month features figs and our host this month is Coleen who blogs at The Redhead Baker.
