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.
Servings: 2 people
Difficulty Level: 1
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
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
Handful of baby spinach leaves bread ( I used protein bread slices which were a bit stale - you can use french baguettes or sourdough bread )
4-5 pieces of walnuts
blueberries ( optional )
1 Tsp of Honey
2 Tsp of Olive oil
1 Tsp of balsamic Vinegar
Salt and Pepper
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.
Toss in some crushed walnuts and Enjoy.
