If you’re never added figs to your food repertoire, this Fig Prosciutto and Goats Cheese Salad is the perfect place to start! p.s. Figs are also an aphrodisiac so all the more reason to add a few ;)


Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 handfuls mixed lettuce leaves
  • 2 fresh figs, cut into wedges
  • 4 slices prosciutto, torn
  • 50 g goat's cheese, crumbled
  • 1 handful pine nuts, toasted (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon white condiment (white balsamic vinegar)
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 2 handfuls basil leaves

Method

  1. Arrange lettuce, figs and prosciutto on a large salad platter. Crumble goat’s cheese over the top.
  2. To make dressing, blend white balsamic, olive oil, honey and basil leaves in a food processor or with a stick blender until chopped and combined. Just start with 1 tablespoon of honey. Taste and adjust to your liking.
  3. Pour dressing over salad and sprinkle with pine nuts.

Notes... I also love to make a finger food version which is perfect for picnics and parties. For the recipe and many more delicious gluten free recipes, download the recipeezi Gluten Free from the App stores.

  • The fig is an interesting ingredient. I would use firm ones – not too ripe and squashy

  • Looks and sounds great – can I use dried figs in place of the fresh ones which are so yummy I just can’t stop eating them.

  • Age 50+ and I’m yet to try a fig. Never had a fresh or dried one, not even cooked in a meal. How sad is that!? This could be the ideal way to introduce them
