Midwinter picnic

We're in the midst of a super chill here in Minnesota,
so anything to make me feel like summertime is welcome.
These yummy sandwiches made our lunch today feel a bit like a midwinter picnic.

Figs and prosciutto are always a lovely combination. The addition of sharp asiago and slightly bitter arugula makes for delightful layers of flavor with the salty and sweet. Yum, yum, yum and yum.

Fig jam and Prosciutto on Baguette

for each sandwich you will need......

a big hunk of baguette, sliced in half
2-3 T fig jam
3 slices prosciutto
4-5 thin slices of asiago cheese
a handful of arugula

-spread one half of the sliced baguette with the fig jam
-pile on the prosciutto and asiago
-top with arugula and other baguette half
-close your eyes, take a big bite, and dream of summer
