It’s the start of fig season, and California Figs sent me a ton of figs to play around with. I’ve been eating them as is, adding them to my overnight oats, but one of my favorite ways I’ve enjoyed them is in this delicious salad which also happens to be quite beautiful.

I still have lots of figs to use up before they go bad, what’s your favorite way to eat figs?
