Mini Fig and Blue Cheese Tarts
Bibb Lettuce Salad with Bacon and Croutons
With the food train still rolling through the end of the holiday season, I thought I would post a recipe for the appetizer table. These mini tarts pack a ton of flavor and are just the right size for someone whose other hand is occupied with a beverage at, say, a New Years party. Savory blue cheese, sweet fig preserves and a nutty crunch all nestled in a flaky tart with a balsamic reduction drizzle is a winning combination of flavor and texture. They pair nicely with a variety of wines and are substantial enough to provide a proper prelude to a main dish.
