As I write it is a quiet Autumn morning – the first day of Autumn and it feels peaceful.
Figs come into their own at this time. So delicate, I only bring 3 or 4 home with me at a time, and we eat them one at a time. A delicate thing needs delicate treatment.
For this salad, you can make your own nut butter, or purchase from a good providore or grocer.

Fig Salad with Almond Butter Dressing and Slivered Almonds
Quarter some figs and place on a nice plate. Thin some almond butter with sherry vinegar and some water to the consistency of a thick dressing. Drizzle over the figs and scatter slivered almonds over them as well.
I like to have this as a pre-diner salad.
