Fig + Provolone Toasts

Sweet figs are paired with salty Italian provolone on these delicious little toasts, perfect for picnics, snacking or late summer appetizers. Figs hit the farmers market late summer and last into early fall, so I find myself using them in abundance in September - topping my morning yogurt, decorating cakes, and filling cheese boards. You'll most likely come across black mission figs or Adriatic figs (the pale green ones), but any figs will work for these toasts.
