Figs with Goat Cheese Salad
1 shallot finely chopped
2 teaspoons balsamic glaze
1½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
salt and pepper
3 tablespoons olive oil
2½ cups salad mix such as arugula, mixed green, red leaves salad
8 ripe figs
3 ounces goat cheese
In a shallow salad bowl mix together the finely chopped shallot, balsamic glaze, salt, and pepper. With a whisk add the olive oil slowly while mixing to create a creamy vinaigrette.
Add the salad, reserve a small handful to use at the end, to the creamy vinaigrette, and gently mix well to coat the salad.
Transfer the salad to a large serving dish and spread the salad to the line to the dish.
Cut the figs lengthwise into quarters and arrange over the salad. Add the goat cheese by teaspoon droplets over the salad and figs. Finish by scattering the remaining salad over it. Drizzle with more olive oil and season with more salt and pepper to taste.
