Ingredients
1/2 cup chopped stemmed dried Calimyma figs
3 Tablespoons water
2 Tablespoons chopped pitted Kalamata olives or other brine-cured black olives
1 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 Tablespoon drained capers, chopped
3/4 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
One 5.5-ounce log of soft fresh goat cheese
1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts
