This dip is a delicious and simple diversion from the norm. It involves dried figs, balsamic glaze and cream cheese. It’s THAT simple.

Slice your figs finely as the mixture will be quite chunky otherwise. I wasn’t successful in using a blender – I presume that a heavy duty one would be better for something like this. However I loved the final chunky effect so I would stick to mixing it by hand.

Mix into the cream cheese and add about a tablespoon of balsamic glaze.

    I don’t know why, but I am imagining how awesome this dip would be if you wrap grissini in parma ham and dip them in. seriously i’m having drooling moments right now! 😀 awesome 😀

    ooh re figs and blending… might be an idea to soak them in some warm liquid for an hour or so before?

      yes that’s what I should have done, although it had a bit of crunch to it without soaking, which made it very interesting too
