This week, I bought a carton of fresh figs from a roadside stand. Growing up, we had a fig tree out back, so I love the flavor of homemade fig preserves. This week, however, I didn’t have enough time, energy or figs to go through all the effort of making fig preserves, so I made a bright, cheery salad out of roasted figs, shaved cheese and tossed the greens with a honey lemon vinaigrette. Mmmm… magnificent!
Here is the recipe I followed, except I substituted the Gorgonzola for Parmesan because that is the cheese I had available. Enjoy everyone!
