Salad of warm figs w goat cheese and balsamic glaze

Ingredients

3 cups of Arugula (washed and dried, I use a salad spinner)
Large figs (6-8)
Goat Cheese (I like the soft kind), about 2 table spoons per serving
1/4 cup of pine nuts
1/4 of thinly sliced red onion (or more if you like)
1 table spoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon of aged balsamic
1 teaspoon of berry preserves ) Balsamic glaze for decoration

Preparation

1
Wash and dry figs, slice in half, warm in over or toaster over on an oiled tray for about 20 minutes.
2
In the meantime, wash and try arugula.
3
Slice red onions thinly.
4
Heat small skilled and toast pine nuts, careful not to burn.
5
For dressing, mix ingredients 6-8.
6
Once figs are ready, toss arugula and red onions w dressing. You don't want to leave the dressing on too long b/c arugula is delicate and gets mushy. Plate and top w pine nuts.
7
Add warm figs, top w a 1/2 spoon or so of goat cheese. Top figs w balsamic glaze (store bought), if you don't have it, can use some of the dressing for this.
8
Enjoy!
