    1. Cut a criss-cross in the figs, but not quite to the bottom, and then, using your thumb and forefinger, squeeze the base of the fig to reveal the inside.
    2. Place the figs on a large plate and weave around 1 piece of prosciutto or ham around each fig.
    3. Add the ripped up basil and the buffalo mozzarella.
    4. Drizzle over the honey, making sure each fig has some in the middle, then drizzle the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Alternatively, mix all the dressing ingredients together in a bowl and season, to taste, then drizzle everything with the honey and lemon juice dressing.
