Caramelized Roasted Figs with Baby Greens and Honey Vinaigrette

Faina Shpiler


I was supposed to serve a meal to a very special person in my life. This person is a vegetarian and I wanted to prepare something light, creative and impressive.

15 Min


small fresh black mission figs, stemmed
extra-virgin olive oil
kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp
warm water
lemon, juiced
2 c
baby mixed greens
1 handful
each basil, chives and cilantro
4 oz
gorgonzola or goat cheese, cut in big chunks


1Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
2Cut a small “X” in the top of the figs and squeeze it gently to crown it slightly. Put the figs on a sheet pan and drizzle them with olive oil. Bake until the figs are soft and caramelized, about 15 minutes.
Put the mixed greens and chopped herbs in a bowl, drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper; toss gently with your hands.
3In a small bowl, combine the honey, warm water, and lemon juice; whisk with a fork to combine.
4To serve, divide the greens between 2 plates, mound the chunks of gorgonzola cheese on the side of each and place 2 roasted figs in the center of the salad. Drizzle the whole thing with the warm honey vinaigrette.
