Fig, Tomato and Cheese on a plate...

I've been keeping things fairly simple in my kitchen this week - not intentionally. I've been coming into contact with some seriously beautiful locally grown produce, and sometimes veggies should just stay whole and simple - right? 
Especially where today's post is concerned.
Special thanks to Willow Creek Organic Farms for making their lovely Figs and Tomatoes available at my Farmers Market last week. I may not have known at the time of purchasing them what I would do, but putting them together in today's recipe was a no brainer! Another wonderful thing about this recipe (outside of its contents) is that you have the option to make it all by hand. 
No Food Processor needed!

Step 1.
Take a Fig, and slice it in half...
(If you don't have fresh figs on hand try very ripe Pear, Apricot, or even Mango!)
Step 2.
Take some yummy Cherry Tomatoes, slice those up, toss them with fresh Parsley or Basil, a little bit of salt, pepper, and your favorite Oil and Vinegar. 
I used: 1 tsp of Grape seed Oil & 1 tsp of White Balsamic Vinegar for about 1/2 c of sliced Tomatoes.
Step 3.
Make one of the following Cheezes:

Step 4.
Put it all together!

As much as I hate to Dine and, Recipe and Run, I have way too much to catch up on today! 
...Just as soon as I eat the contents of those photos.
