Scoop a small amount of the flesh from the fig halves, creating just a slight indent.
Sprinkle a few granules of salt into the indent.
Place a drop or two of each - Truffle oil and balsamic into the indent. (Seriously, it only takes a drop or two)

Line a plate with lemon leaves and arrange fig halves on plate.
