The balsamic glaze was a bit overpowering in my opinion. And it was a very, very salty appetizer. It was, however, tasty, if you can tolerate and enjoy a salty flavor. I would love to alter it a bit and try them again.

I used fresh figs and these were delicious, although a little expensive to make. All guests loved them.
