Ingredients
  • 2 heads Belgian endive, quartered lengthwise
  • 2 small heads radicchio, quartered lengthwise
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 pound sliced prosciutto, cut slices in 1/2 on an angle across the center
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • 2 dried figs, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
Directions

Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat.

Season the quartered pieces endive and readicchio with salt and pepper. Wrap each section with a half slice of ham. Brush the wrapped sections with extra-virgin olive oil and grill 7 to 8 minutes, turning every couple of minutes, until ham is crispy and lettuce sections are tender.

Place figs and vinegar in a pot and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer. Reduce the vinegar down to a few tablespoons, until the fig pieces are soft and vinegar is thick, 5 to 7 minutes.

Arrange the lettuce on individual plates or a serving dish and spoon the fig and balsamic reduction over the lettuce, drizzling back and forth over the plate.
