I believe in love. And I LOVE this salad.
Ive eaten this twice over the past two days and believe I could continue eating it for the rest of my life... or at least until the figs go out of season again.
Marinated Fig Salad with Blue Cheese and Walnuts
Adapted from The Kitchen is my Playground
4 medium sized fresh figs, cut in half and then quartered
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp good quality balsamic vinegar (Emphasis on good quality!)
1 tbsp granulated stevia (or sweetener of choice, honey would work too!)
Pinch sea salt
2 cups rocket
2 cups baby spinach
2 tbsp blue cheese crumbles (or more depending on taste)
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped into crumbles
1. Place the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, stevia and salt
in a large ziplock bag. Add figs and gently massage so to coat with the marinade. Set aside and let stand for at least 30 min
2. Divide rocket and baby spinach and place on two salad plates/bowls. Divide the figs between the plates and drizzle with the marinade. Top with blue
cheese crumbles and chopped walnuts.
3. Eat and fall in love.
