Fig Salad, or A [Fig] Tree Grows in Brooklyn


We waited all summer, and now the fig tree in our backyard is finally producing some delicious fruit! Aside from eating figs for breakfast and snacks throughout the day, I decided to incorporate them into dinner. Now we’ve eaten salad with figs in it for the past three nights.


  • Mixed Greens
  • Figs, quartered
  • Another fruit: preferably strawberry or mango
  • Red onion
  • Balsamic vinaigrette (homemade or store-bought)

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy!
