Drop everything you are doing and make this salad now. And I mean right now.
I’ve been obsessed with this salad for the last few days and seriously go to bed dreaming about it.
Here in Croatia the produce is so fresh and the tomatoes and figs are simply out of this world.
In the US I’ve only seen the dark colored smallish figs, but here they are plump, large and light green.
And they simply taste incredible (and I kind of want to cry tears of sweet happiness every time I take a bite).
Am I the only person in love with figs or are ya with me?
Figs prosciutto and blue cheese are simply made to be together and to make that into a full meal I added in some salad greens, fresh tomatoes and chopped walnuts. For an appetizer or snack you simply can’t go wrong with figs with blue cheese, honey and pistachios.
Oh my. Party of flavors in your mouth.
Really though. Seriously my new favorite salad in the world. I’ve had this for lunch the last three days and I’m tempted to start eating this for breakfast too. Would that be wrong?
Oh those fresh figs. My new favorite food. Please tell me you can find the plump green ones in the US too – don’t break my heart.
The flavors in this salad are so incredible that no salad dressing is required. Just a squeeze of lemon juice. That’s it.
So grab a huge bowl and start tossing the ingredients in, and I only wish I could see your facial expression as your grab a huge bite hopefully with a little bit of everything on that fork all at once.
What are the fig prices around the world? At a local market in the small Croatian sea side town of Makarska I got 5 of these green little babies for $1.25.
Sounds like a steal to me. If only figs didn’t bruise so easily and traveled better I would just stock a dozen of these in my backpack at all times. But squishy figs just won’t do. : / Think wrapping them up in that bubble paper they use for electronics would work?
Just writing this post makes me hungry again. Might be time for another fig, prosciutto, blue cheese and tomato salad recipe to be thrown together.
I’ve made a vegetarian version of this recipe before, but the prosciutto really adds in that extra umpth.
