fig and goat cheese sandwiches

We love seeing all the fresh stone fruit and figs available in the markets right now, yet another reason to celebrate summer!  We bought some figs a few days ago and decided to make a couple of quick sandwiches for lunch.

Makes 2 sandwiches.

1/8 - 1/4 lb. of goat cheese (our favorite is Capricho de Cabra)

1 teaspoon of lemon rind

2 figs

4 slices of bread (we used Boudin sourdough)

maple syrup or honey for drizzling

Toast the bread and spread goat cheese on (as much as you like).  Sprinkle lemon rind and drizzle maple syrup or honey on the goat cheese.  Slice the figs and place them on top of the goat cheese.  Top with another bread slice and enjoy!
