Prosciutto Rolls With Arugula Goat Cheese  Figs and Lemon Drizzle. This is a simple but slightly time-consuming appetizer.  Serve with Champagne or a nice French Sancerre wine.  The presentation is very pretty.  I like to make these at least an hour ahead of my guests arrival so the flavors have time to mingle.  The original recipe was from Bon Appetite Magazine years ago!

Ingredients

Instructions

Remove the goat cheese from the refrigerator about 20 minutes before you start and let it warm up so it will be easier to spread.

Make The Dressing

Grate the lemon peel from your lemon then juice the lemon.

Combine the olive oil, fresh lemon juice and grated lemon peel in a small bowl and whisk to combine.

Assemble The Rolls

I did not guide the deli on what I needed my Prosciutto to look like so I had to improvise a little.  Try to get lean slices with the fat mostly on the edges.  My slices were divided by fat.  In some cases I overlapped other slices to make it work.

Place the slices on a wide work surface, about 2" apart.  Spread the goat cheese over the prosciutto slices.

Divide the fig quarters evening over the cheese. 

Drizzle the dressing over each slice. Sprinkle pepper over each slice.

Arrange the arugula alternating the tops and stems as shown making sure some of the tops of the leaves overlap the edges of the prosciutto.

If you are making these ahead of time make, plate and cover them with a damp paper towel and plastic wrap.  Make these a maximum of 2 hours ahead.
