Caramelized Fig and Roasted Goat Cheese Salad


This salad is a delicious and quick treat for dinner or lunch. Great lunch option to bring to work as well. I am huge fan of goat cheese and figs. I grew up collecting figs straight from the trees in my grand parents farm at the country side of Ouazzane, Morocco. We then would eat them straight away while sitting under a tree.


If you buy them from the supermarket, make sure to eat them within one or two days because they are easily perishable. So people like to peel them, but I prefer to eat them unpeeled because that's where most of the flavors is for me. Figs are rich in fiber, potassium and manganese, a single fig (about 2 1/2-inches in diameter) has about 50 calories. They're also a fruit source of calcium.


Truly a delight as a snack or as a meal.

Ingredients:


2-4 medium figs depending on your taste

4 goat cheese galettes - any type of goat cheese will pair well with figs

100g cherry tomatoes

1/2 red onion

blueberries ( optional )

1 Tsp of Honey

2 Tsp of Olive oil

1 Tsp of balsamic Vinegar

Salt and Pepper


Step 1:

Cover the goat cheese with some honey and place on a piece of bread. Keep the bread sizes small. You could use a French baguette and cut it into small circles.

Place the bread slices in the oven for 15 minutes on 160 degrees or until the goat cheese is slightly melted/brown-ish color.


Step 2: Cut the tomatoes, the red onion and toss in a salad bowl with spinach

for the dressing, you will need some olive oil and baslamic vinegar, salt and pepper.


Step 4: Add the dressing and mix well. Add the bread slices on the top of the salad.
