Arugula, Fig & Goat Cheese Salad


I know summer is finally well under way when the figs show up at the farmers market. I love figs – they are my favorite fruit. The fact that figs are only around for a short time makes them that much more special. I whipped up this salad for lunch today – it took about 5 minutes, so there really is no excuse for not eating healthy. This salad is the perfect blend of sweet, salty, crunchy, creamy and peppery. If you don’t have fig balsamic, a good quality balsamic will work fine.

3 figs, cut into bite size pieces
3 TBSP slivered almonds
2 oz soft goat cheese
4 c Arugula
1 tsp olive oil
1 TBSP fig balsamic vinegar (about)
Salt and pepper

Combine ingredients in a large bowl and toss. I toss with the olive oil, then drizzle in the balsamic until nicely coated.
