While Caleb and I were in Victoria BC this year we found these amazing dried figs by a company called Organic Superfoods. Before then, we had both never tried figs and became instantly hooked. Now here in California, it’s hot! That means an abundance of fresh organic fruits to choose from including, you guessed it – fresh organic figs. But what to do with fresh figs? They are beautiful, but you can’t really let them lay around for too long before going wrinkly. Knowing this and being in a hurry to use them, I threw together this salad that also includes some left over crumble from my 10 Minute Raw Peach Cobbler recipe.
2-3 Cups of Spring Mix Salad or other greens
3-4 Fresh Figs, Sliced into fours
1/4 Cup Blueberries
2-3 Dates, chopped
3-4 Sprigs of Mint*optional
1-2 tbsp. Crumble
2 tbsp of Oil Free Balsamic Dressing
Instructions: Toss all ingredients together in a bowl, drizzle on your balsamic and serve.
