Deep South's Note:
This sweet and savory salad wakes up your tastebuds with the perfect mix of complimentary flavors. Wait for ripe turkey figs to make this salad the first time. Once you've experienced this salad in its glory, you can substitute halved red grapes for the figs if you must, or get a satisfying salad using dried cranberries or dried figs when fresh aren't available.
