Bocconcini Pops

-12 small to medium bocconcini (soft Italian cheese) Can be found in most grocery or specialty stores.
-3-4 slices of prosciutto
-2 cups of arugula, washed and patted dry
-olive oil
-dry figs cut in small pcs. (optional)
-salt to taste

Cut you prosciutto in 3 strips length wise and lay 3-4 leaves of arugula on the prosciutto strip and drizzle very little olive oil. Place the bocconcino on one end of the strip and wrap the prosciutto around it and pierce a "fancy" toothpick through the bocconcino this will prevent the prosciutto from unravelling. Lightly salt to taste and they are ready to serve.
*you can add the dry figs and sprinkle them on the bed of arugula it add a nice contrast sweetness to the bitterness of the arugula.
