Figgy Yogurt Snacks

@ouizoid and @Larry (who, incidentally, are celebrating 35 years of marriage today!) sent me home with an enormous bag of figs from their tree yesterday. Today I made this for lunch, but it would also make a perfect appetizer to eat while you sip cold Prosecco, or as a topping for lightly dressed arugula.
  1. 1.
    Start with fresh figs. I like to figure 2-3 per person.
    These figs are green, but black mission figs would work well too.
  2. 2.
    Halve the figs and arrange on a board or platter.
  3. 3.
    Top each fig with a spoonful of Greek yogurt.
    Would also be good with ricotta, goat cheese, or even cream cheese.
  4. 4.
    Drizzle each fig with a few drops of good balsamic vinegar.
    The Aceto balsamic from Trader Joe's is very good and very affordable.
  5. 5.
    Top each with a few drops of extra virgin olive oil.
    Hold your finger loosely over the spout to control how much oil comes out.
  6. 6.
    Sprinkle on a few red chili flakes.
    This is optional, but recommended.
  7. 7.
    Top with coarse salt and black pepper.
    Or regular salt, if that's what you have.
  8. 8.
    Devour immediately.
    Don't bother with a plate.
  9. 9.
    The cat will be jealous.
    She'll get over it.
  10. 10.
    Yay for fig season!
