      What a fabulous salad! I got the same Gooseberry Patch cookbook in the mail last week and this was the first recipe that caught my eye. I've never had figs much before and bought some a few weeks ago on a whim; this recipe was a perfect use for some of them! I cut it down to one salad and used apple cider vinegar. I did leave off the hazelnuts because I'm not a big nut fan but otherwise made as written. Will be making again tomorrow since I have more of all the ingredients. Thanks for posting (so I didn't have to!)

      Delicious and gorgeous. Not a bland salad here! I used sweet onions instead of red, unrefined extra virgin olive oil, organic dried mission figs (first time using), dark brown sugar, organic apple cider vinegar, goats milk feta cheese, halved blanch almonds toasted in a dry pan to replace hazelnuts because I didn't have any on hand, plus the rest of the ingredients. A make again that I hope to try with the called for nuts. Made for Veggie Swap 33 ~ April ~ 2011.
