A wonderful summer appetizer that’s easy to throw together, with grilled fresh figs, prosciutto and burrata. Serve on a platter with bread on the side or atop crostini, as an hors d’oeuvre.
Preheat the grill to medium-high.
A note on balsamic vinegar: Thick balsamic vinegar is different from the kind used for salad dressing. It’s more viscous and sweeter and often called “balsamic condimento” or “balsamic glaze.” It’s great for drizzling on salads, meats and grilled vegetables. You can find it in most grocery stores and on Amazon. Or you can make it yourself by boiling down ordinary balsamic vinegar until it gets thick and syrupy.
