      I can't say enough great things about this salad. It tasted like it came from a five-star restaurant, yet was easy enough to have done in a matter of minutes. I paired it with bacon-wrapped steaks that I had gotten from Costco, and it was the perfect meal. Even Mr. Finicky gave it a perfect score!

      Wonderful salad! So happy with the sweetness of the figs and the tartness of the dressing. I mixed arugula and baby spinach, and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing! Made for Photo Tag!!
