    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Snip the tiny stem end off each fig and cut in half lengthwise.
    2. 2
      Mix vinegar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a medium bowl.
    3. 3
      Add the figs and gently toss to coat.
    4. 4
      Let sit while you heat a grill (indoor or outdoor).
    5. 5
      If necessary, coat your grill with a little olive oil.
    6. 6
      When ready, grill the figs (reserving all of the marinade in the bowl) for about 2 to 3 minutes per side or until grill marks appear -- don't overcook as the figs will become too mushy. Remove figs to a plate.
    7. 7
      To the reserved marinade, add olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper, whisking well to completely incorporate.
    8. 8
      Place greens in a large salad bowl; toss with dressing, then mound equal amounts on 4 individual serving plates.
    9. 9
      Place 2 fig halves decoratively over each plate of greens and serve.

      This is a lovely, sweet salad that is easy to make and sure to impress. I love the cinnamon in it. I'm sure this would be good with goat cheese and proscuitto and will add those in next time. Thanks, Chef Kate, for posting - I was given some lovely figs that I had no idea what to do with!

      Produces fantastic grilled figs, bringing the best out of them, could use them as a dessert, just as well as in a salad. Simple salad of greens and figs.

      At the moment we have the gool ol' California Mission figs available, so used them in this recipe, which, for me, made A UNIQUE & REFRESHING SALAD! Thanks so much for posting this great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
