I went in search of ripe, eating figs on the tree, but it's really too early in the season so paid a small fortune for a basket from the supermarket. Having said that, I'm glad I made the investment as this recipe is so good! The combination was outstanding and very sophisticated, so I'll definitely be making this a lot around August/September when we will have our own figs. DH and I drank a chilled Vin Santo, which was a great accompaniment.
I have made this twice when I was lucky enough to get ripe figs, and it's wonderful. I like to serve it on a bed of young greens, though, and I also use balsamic vinegar instead of white wine vinegar. I think this recipe is forgiving enough that it can be played with and still be terrific. Today we had it with a warm baguette and some homemade red wine, for lunch. Yum!
Hi F.T. great receipe you have here, I'm always on the look out for new fig receipes, as I have an enormous fig tree in my front yard. If the weather goes well I can harvest figs twice a year, in June, then again in the end of September. I'm lucky this year, for I'll have 2 harvest. I had some friends over and tried this recipe out on them. They went absolutey crazy over them, I served it with a nice white Port wine, just the perfect touch. Thanks so much for the lovely receipe, I will be making this often, even if its just for me. lol...lol...lol...
It was made pretty fast and tasted so good. The fruityness of the figs goes so well together with feta and toasted walnuts. Great. Used very ripe figs and they were great in this salad. To emphasize the fruity notes I added very little lemon juice to the vinaigrette. Loved it. Thanks for sharing this delicious salad recipe.
