Simple salads are simply the best. Figs are one of my most favourite fruits but here in Adelaide they are very expensive, about $2 for each little fig. So they are like a treat – instead of buying chocolate, we buy some figs. And their season begins in late Mid Summer – the excitement builds as figs first appear in the shops.
Mostly we eat them slowly, as they are, but Fig Salads are gorgeous. This recipe is very simple and plays to the beautiful flavours of the white fig.
