The theme for this month’s Creative Cooking Crew’s challenge was, "You’re invited to a Thanksgiving dinner party — bring an appetizer". So, I decided to bring an Arugula, Fig and Prosciutto Tart.
This is such a beautiful tart and the combination of flavors and textures are absolutely amazing! Fresh sweet figs, salty prosciutto, creamy cheese, and lemony spicy arugula. This tart is very easy to make, especially if you decide to use store-bought puff pastry , and there's only fifteen minutes of total cook time.
This Arugula, Fig and Prosciutto Tart would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table.
That works for me! 🙂 Thanks for being a part of the group. Best wishes to you and your family.
This goes beautifully with a glass of Prosecco! Beautiful combination of flavors.
How gorgeous is this tart!
Don't recognise "arugula" what is it? Ripe figs wouldn't get that far in this house- they're eaten as soon as they appear.
Arugula is Rúcula in Spanish.
Erica this looks beyond mouth watering. I want it!
The tart looks fabulous, Erica. Definitely my kind of party food.
This is GORGEOUS. Honestly I would be happy with this for my whole meal!
Love the flavors in this tart...arugula and prosciutto...beautiful colors.
Hope you are having a great week Erica 😀

this is absolutely gorgeous and full of great flavors! awesome appetizer!
A very beautiful appetizer, one I could eat anytime. Figs, Manchego Cheese, and Prosciutto are some of my favorite foods.
I made a tart too! This looks so fresh and vibrant! Prosciutto, arugula and figs are so tasty together. What a great combo 🙂
It sure looks great, but isn't the prosciutto just tossed on the top uncooked instead of baked on the crust per the directions in the recipe?
Thanks,Bob!It was a writing mistake.. I fixed the recipe directions.
Hola Erica, ni idea que son 'figs'? Vivo en NE, son fáciles de conseguir? Y si no con que se pudieran reemplazar? Igual la receta suena deli! Gracias!
Figs son brevas, pero puedes usar peras.
This is easy to make and the flavors sound fabulous! I purchased the list of ingredients, but am left puzzled over when to incorporate the basalmic and what to do with the other half of the manchengo cheese.....?
