Fig Salad – delicious!

The family arrived bearing gifts. Beautiful ripe fresh figs. So is what we made for our supper the next day. Fig Salad TheBigForest Blog Yum

Fig salad

2 ripe fresh figs, quartered with stalk removed

40g walnut halves

1 tbsp red wine vinegar

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tsb clear honey

Two hearts of red chicory

50g gorgonzola cut in to pieces


Cut each chicory heart in half and separate the leaves. Wash and dry in a salad spinner.

In a salad bowl mix together the red wine vinegar, olive oil and honey

Place the chicory in the salad bowl and mix with the salad dressing so the leaves are well coated.

Place the quartered figs on top; scatter the walnuts and the gorgonzola.

To serve

Eat with a good homemade wholemeal bread, butter and a glass of crisp white wine.

    • It tasted as good as it looked too. Which isn’t always the case. We had never seen red chicory before but it looked lovely. A bit more glamorous than the food that usually makes it to the table here at TheBigForest!
