From Cooking Light. ..and as I do with most salads......throw in some grilled chicken for a main meal.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Combine lemon juice, oil, salt, and pepper; stir well with a whisk.
  2. Gently toss lettuce mixture with lemon juice mixture.
  3. Sprinkle with bleu cheese.
  4. Sometimes I just use field greens with this salad if I can't find the other .
  5. I have also added candied pecans, yellow raisins and dried cranberries which was also a hit.

Loved this! Fresh figs and blue cheese were meant to go together! Only change I made was to use all baby arugula. Fresh lemon with a dash of olive oil was just the right amount of dressing. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I had to substitute dried figs and the salad was still a hit.
