Ingredients

1/2 Tbsp
olive oil
1/4 cup
thinly sliced shallots (which replaced red onion)
5-6 Tbsp
fig jam, approximately (which replaced whole dried figs)
2 Tbsp
dark balsamic vinegar
4 oz

arugula or mixed greens
fresh rosemary, parsley, basil (for garnish, if desired)

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine olive oil and shallots or red onion in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sauté until onions are coated and softening. If using dried whole figs, cut into 1/4" sliced and add them and the balsamic vinegar to the pan. Sauté 2–5 minutes until figs soften and are nicely coated. Remove from heat.
