Chef Jacquelyn Buchanan enjoys the combination of sweet and floral Orange Blossom Honey goat cheese and fresh figs because they have a complementary flavor profile. Goat cheese, figs and thin-sliced prosciutto over greens dressed in California olive oil and drizzled with lemon juice is California eating at its best — farm fresh, original, healthy and flavorful. In a pinch, Laura Chenel Original fresh or crumbled goat cheese can be used in place of Orange Blossom Honey.

Recipe by Laura Chenel & Marin French Cheese chef Jacquelyn Buchanan, 2015.



  • 1 4-ounce Laura Chenel Orange Blossom Honey Log
  • 4 ounces prosciutto, very thinly sliced
  • 8 fresh figs, sliced into rounds
  • 4 ounces small-leaf arugula
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • Salt and pepper


1. Tear the prosciutto into wide ribbons. Divide and line the bottom of 4 serving plates with the prosciutto. Scatter the sliced figs evenly onto each plate.

2. In a medium bowl, toss the arugula with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Divide the dressed arugula onto each plate. Crumble the Orange Blossom Honey Log over the arugula.

4. Sprinkle the lemon zest and juice evenly over each plate. Drizzle the remaining olive oil evenly over each plate.
