Fig Prosciutto and Rocket Bruschetta


For years we have the tradition here at home making some snack for friday evening.
And now it is more important as Shyama is in College and she only comes home on friday evening for the weekends.
So this is what I made yesterday , well at last I made something which is healthy that deep fried for a snack :-)
It is a easy recipe and I got it from Taste italia Magazine.
I am only posting it so fast as I tool the pic in the evening and I have been trying myhand on taking pictures with artificial light other wise i can never post anything which I make in the evening.
1 Ciabbatta bread, I sliced what ever shape you want. ( I drizzeled a bit of olive oil in each slicze before baking them in the oven)
2 to 3 ripe figs
Oilive oil  and balsamic vinegar. There is jo measurement give in the recipe so i just did according to my taste.
hand full of rocket /rucola salade
1 pack of proscuitto
salt and freshly ground pepeer

Preaheat the oven to 200°c.
Cut the bread according to your liking.
Place the bread in a baking tray and bake in the oven for 6 to 8 minutes .
Cut the figs into quaters or eights depending on the size.
Season , then toss in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
Add a large handfull of rocket salade to the mix.
Once you have removed the bruschetta from the oven, drape two thin slice of prosciutto on top of each piece.
Arrange the fig and the salade and serve.
