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?

  1. Any chance someone has made this as a single serve and can share the ingredient portions? I’m trying to make these for lunch and want to get the WW points aligned with the ingredient portions for one serving. Thanks!

    Gina, we make your wonderful salad recipe above (adding carmelized onions, substituting goat cheese for mozzarella, omitting oil, and drizzling with reduced balsamic vinegar) and put it on top of the Greek nonfat yogurt dough which has been rolled thinly and precooked slightly on a heated pizza stone on the grill or in the oven.  Heaven on earth!  Thank you SO much for all of your creative and delicious recipes!
