Grilled Figs Topped with Feta Cheese

Total Time

Grilling carmelizes the sugars and gives the figs a smoky taste. Use as a garnish, condiment to pork or chicken. Top a salad. A nice way to start or end a meal.This can be pan fried as well.


  1. Brush figs with olive oil and grill them cut-side down over hot coals for about four minutes.
  2. Lay each fig on a fresh basil serve them topped with feta cheese.

I really liked this. I grilled the figs and then topped them with feta cheese mashed together with fresh herbs--basil, parsley, thyme--and cracked black pepper. Then I drizzled them with some honey I thinned with lemon juice. Yum!

This is a superb appetizer. The sweet, grilled figs topped with the sharp feta cheese and THAT counter-pointed by the herbiness of the basil - really a textural and flavour masterpiece. This is going to be at all my summer dinner parties, Rita.
