From Cooking Light. This is so simple and quick to make. I tried grilling the figs (thanks to Rita for the idea from her recipe for grilled figs--Grilled Figs Topped with Feta Cheese), before adding the remaining ingredients and I thought the salad was even better.

This is a delicious salad! I used goat cheese instead of gorgonzola. I loved the balsamic glaze...I had leftovers and it was great on sandwiches!

The gorgonzola, proscuitto and figs are wonderful together. I cheated on the dressing and used "Creme de Balsamique" (already reduced balsamic vinegar). I agree with the suggestion for grilling/broiling the figs. Thanks for the recipe!
