PISTACHIO OIL

Preparation

Combine red wine vinegar, sugar, and dried figs with water in a saucepan; bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and let sit until figs soften, about 30 minutes.

Halve figs lengthwise. (Alternatively, use 6 fresh figs and halve lengthwise.)

Finely crush pistachios and combine with extra-virgin olive oil.

Grill bread slices for some minutes on both sides.

Now it’s all set to prepare the bruschetta. Smear room-temperature Robiola cheese onto warm toasts. Top with halved figs. Drizzle with pistachio oil. Serve.
