The time of year for figs is around August-September, so this simple but elegant salad can be consumed only during mid to late summer. Figs are a nutrient-dense food and a good source of both calcium and potassium.

Whether you’re planning a light lunch or a dinner party, this healthy dish is an excellent option as a side dish…so try it out and enjoy it!

    Hello Juri
    Figs are my favorite fruit, when I was a kid in Portugal we had a fig tree that produced figs the size of pears, they were so sweet. I finally found some fresh figs and I bought flaked salt and made your fig salad, it was delicious and brought back great memories.
    Thank you

    1. Hi Eurico, thanks for trying my favorite fig salad and sharing your childhood memory. Size of pears? that must be so yummy! This is a super simple salad, but I think it’s the best way to enjoy the sweet and fruity fresh fig. I’m so glad you like it!
