fig salad

Wow, I just tried fresh figs for the first time this weekend and I was instantly impressed. I have had dried figs before and never thought of them as anything special, but fresh figs are special! 😉 These babies are only in season for a short time so I recommend that you go out and buy some before the season is over. They are so sweet and soft and beautiful all at the same time. I knew after I tried them I needed to make a fig salad! They paired so nicely with the goat cheese feta in this salad and the pine nuts just give it that extra crunch. I know this salad will be a crowd pleaser…….so go make it now! 🙂
