Transforming Sourdough Bread: Nectarine and Fig Open-Faced Sandwich


I had the chance to create many different dishes this past summer, but this one is by far my favorite. I took advantage of what summer has to offer: Californian figs and nectarines, paired with balsamic glaze. The slightly tart balsamic glaze goes perfectly with the sweet figs and nectarines! This open-faced sandwich can be a quick snack or a light lunch for a busy day. Although it may look fancy, it is extremely easy to prepare. Please do yourself a favor and treat yourself.

Let this be a ‘toast’ to Summer 2015! Hope you all had an amazing one!


1 slice sourdough bread

1 tsp raspberry jam

1/3 cup arugula or mixed greens

3 figs

1 small nectarine

2 tbsp herbed goat cheese

1/2 tsp Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze

1 sprigs of rosemary

1 sprig thyme

1/2 tsp butter


  1. Place a bit of butter on the bread and toast on an iron skillet. Remove from the skillet and spread raspberry jam on one side of the toast.
  2. Place arugula on the toast (the side with the raspberry jam.)
  3. Slice nectarine and warm up slices on a skillet on low heat for 3-5 minutes, turning them over frequently.
  4. Slice figs; place on toast along with the nectarine slices and goat cheese.
  5. Wash and dry the herbs and garnish on the bread.
  6. Drizzle balsamic glaze on top.
