Bitter Greens Salad with Figs, Gorgonzola and Caramel Walnuts

May 29, 2021 Published by Dina Leave your thoughts

What kind of salad do you like? This is a bitter greens salad with ripe fresh figs, Gorgonzola dolce, caramel walnuts and a honey vinaigrette. Not too bitter…not too sweet…it is just right…
.
Use radicchio, endive and some other mild greens for balance and colour (not arugula, it will be too much bitter).

Toast walnuts with a little sugar in a skillet until sugar melts and caramelizes around the walnuts. Let them dry on parchment .

Choose ripe figs and halve them vertically.

Scatter Gorgonzola over (it’s very soft and creamy). You are allowed to lick your fingers if it’s just your salad.

Make a vinaigrette with a tablespoon of white balsamic, 4 tablespoons olive oil, 1 or so tablespoon honey and balance with salt. Drizzle over the salad and I like a bit of honey drizzled over my salad as well, hubs doesn’t.


Enjoy with good bread.
