Happy Summer everybody!
I hope you’re enjoying these weeks whether you live North or South, East of West! As you well know, summer calls for greens so here I have a sweet and delicious option for your weekends lunch. Today I’m using my favorite fruit, FIGS! Oh well, I still remember myself as a kid climbing up a tree at my Aunt’s house with a plastic bag just harvesting figs for hours along with my cousins, those were the days!
This is my take on a “Sweet Arugula and Fig Salad”, so get your salad spinner out because it’s time for your greens!
Before we begin, I just want to mention an awesome product I just got. I’m talking about my new “Zyliss SwiftDry Salad Spinner”. This is tool is just amazing if you’re looking for a kitchen gadget to make sure to wash your greens properly and ending up with very crisp leafs at the end, not soggy-humid at all! You can get more information about this product right here.
Ingredients (2 portions)
For the dressing
Instructions (10 minutes)
Wash all your greens.
To make the dressing just put all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk for 2 minutes until well combined.
Add the dressing to the greens to incorporate. Add cashews, cucumber peels and parmesan cheese.
To plate just put a good amount of salad in a plate and add 4 figs cut in quarters as in the picture above.
Enjoy! You can add a few pieces of grilled chicken on top if you’re looking for a full meal!
