Fig and Mixed Green Salad



This is a simple salad, using figs from my garden and salad greens and tomatoes from my farm. My little fig tree that is about 5 years old, produced weeks of amazing figs and saved us money buying them. If you live in a region that gets colder winters its good to plant a fig tree close to your house so it gets a little micro climate. 



Ingredients:

for one plate-
  • 1-2 figs sliced
  • a generous handful of mixed salad greens, my mix has arugula, lettuce, spinach, mizuna and pea shoots.
  • one small tomato sliced
  • a few slices of cucumber
  • a dash of balsamic vinegar 
  • a dash of extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a few pieces of feta cheese
Method:


  1. chop all of the salad ingredients
  2. add to the plate arrange, drizzle with oil and vinegar and add feta
  3. enjoy



Aren't simple in season salads the best?
