Guess what I found the other day… FIGS! Yay, I found some fresh ones at on our way home from holidays!
I love fresh figs in salads…
On Thursday I even had a fig salad for two meals!! Above is Supper, below is Lunch…
Lunch Salad sans poulet!
In the salads I put some goat cheese, and pecans I candied quickly in a pan. After it was done I squeezed a quarter of a clementine on the salad in place of a dressing. Supper’s salad included a small chopped chicken breast. Both were SO good! Nice and Clean!
Recipe can be found here with the method I candied the pecans using Turbinado sugar.
Sooooo easy, and not a big deal to do a single serving to toast frozen nuts to add to salads (I freeze my pecans since my Mother-in-law told me it keeps them fresher longer but they do not taste great added to salads or other foods raw from freezer IMO)
Breakfast today was a clean AB&J! Just Almond butter and fresh figs sliced on top of some Earth Grain’s Multigrain Thin Buns.
This fall put a little Fig in your life…
Have you ever tried figs? What did you think? Do you prefer fresh or dried figs?
