Grilled Fig and Herbed Cheese Crostini
1

Heat an outdoor grill to medium, or heat a well-seasoned grill pan over medium heat.

2

Lightly spray the cut surface of the figs with cooking spray. Place the figs on the grill, and cook until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes a side. Place the figs in a shallow dish and drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and lemon juice. Let the figs marinate while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

3

Puree the cottage cheese in a food processor or blender until smooth and light. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the sage, the chives, salt and pepper. Set aside.

4

Lightly spray both sides of the bread slices with cooking spray. Grill the slices on both sides until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes.

5

Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the cottage cheese mixture on each slice of bread, spreading to the edges. Top each slice with a grilled fig and sprinkle with the remaining sage.
