My absolute best holiday appetizer is simply delectable.

Martha’s Figs Wrapped in Basil with Balsamic Vinegar
Serves 8
8 fresh Black Mission Figs
16 large fresh basil leaves
Aged balsamic, for drizzling
• Cut figs in half.
• Place each fig half on an upturned basil leaf around fig.
• Drizzle each fig with a few drops of vinegar, and serve immediately.

Brenda’s note: Now, Maralyn and I are not ones to gild Martha’s figs—however, a dollop of goat cheese on top of the fig works wonders for us decadent cheese lovers.
