Summer Salad #4

This super-quick but utterly delicious salad of figs and prosciutto will be great as a starter or a a light meal for this summer hot days. These figs came from a magnificent old tree in my parents farm, and are part of a fig orchard that  stands on the property. This year the fig tree has been very generous and figs abound - tasty, sweet, rich and it's a pleasure to get them directly from the tree and to prepare wonderful, effortless  meals that taste like heaven.
