How to create a visualization that shows the latest N results of a search?

Specifically, I have a search saved that gives me all the syslog entries Monit has logged. I want to add a box on a dashboard that shows the latest N results from that search.

Basically, what I get from the Discover tab. Just only showing one field, and only the last few entries found.

How can I do that?

A Data table doesn't seem to be the way to go... When I create a new data table visualization I can't find anything that just lets me list the data in a field...

I'm on Kibana 4.1.0.

If you save a search from the Discover area with what you want (ie fields as well) you can then create a table with that search.
