Figs with Goat Cheese Salad
Fall is upon us and figs season is here. This Fig with Goat Cheese Salad is classic, beautiful, savory, and an elegant dish that is perfect for a light lunch, or a late summer salad dinner.
You will be happily surprised by how easy it is to make this salad. In less than 10 minutes, and I am very generous with my time here, you can be sitting at your table enjoying this fabulous dish.
What type of figs should I use?
The fresh figs, ficus carica, I used for this recipe are medium dark-skinned. In the Northern hemisphere, the figs are in season from late summer to early autumn.
They can be enjoyed fresh or dried. Excellent in a jam format. The pairing of the goat cheese with the figs makes a great contrast with the tangy component of the salad and vinaigrette.
They do spoil easily thus use them as soon as you purchase them.
