Rocket and Marinated Fig Salad

Rocket and Marinated Fig Salad

Posted 2018-03-02 by finyfollow

I was given some figs and as they do not last long, I wanted something that I could easily make that night.

This salad was easy and the flavours were delicious, and well worth buy a few figs for.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes 30 minutes standing
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
Handful of rocket - about a cup
5 fresh figs
2 tbsp olive oil
1½ tbsp balsamic vinegar
½ tbsp honey
¼ tsp Dijon mustard
About 1 tbsp blue cheese, crumbled
About 1 tbsp walnuts, chopped

Method
  • Combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, and Dijon mustard plus a tiny bit of salt in a bowl.

  • Whisk until it is well mixed.

  • Cut the figs in halves - I used more as mine were quite small.


  • Add the figs and gently stir to coat them.

  • Leave it to stand for about 30 minutes at least.


  • Put the figs on top of the rocket, and drizzle with a small amount of the marinade.


  • Top with the blue crumbled blue cheese and walnuts - you CAN use more of these two if you wish.

  • Take care not to use too much blue cheese or it will take over the flavour of the salad.
