These Smoked Salmon Wrapped Figs With Goat Cheese are amazing. They are smoky, savory and sweet. They are a no cook appetizer and since they are drizzled with honey a perfect treat for Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year. I had a version of this at a party years ago and was delighted by the unexpected combination of flavors and have since recreated it and served it to guests. I love that it requires so cooking and uses ingredients that stay for at least a week in the refrigerator (including the fresh figs).
You can stuff the figs with goat cheese (as pictured) or for the more developed palates, you can use blue cheese. Lilly (my 3 1/2 year old) won’t eat cereal and milk but her favorite snack is seaweed. I tried giving her some blue cheese but she took one whiff and turned up her nose. Oh well, more for me.
