How to Make Caramelized Roasted Figs with Baby Greens and Honey Vinaigrette
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Cut 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.
- In a small bowl, combine the honey, warm water, and lemon juice; whisk with a fork to combine.
- To 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.
