GRILLED FIG & ARUGULA FLATBREAD

Grilled Fig & Arugula Flatbread

Getting every bit of grilling in before the Summer comes to an end. This idea came when a friend asked me if I ever missed cheese, especially eating fruits with savory cheese. I answered by making this bleu “cheese” grilled fig flat bread.  I would describe this as a triple “S” recipe.
