I absolutely love the warm and beautiful colour that ripe figs have. Yes, purple is my favorite colour, and figs have to be one of my favorite fruits to enjoy this season.
Even though ‘salad’ as such is not to be seen on our plates during winter (think stews and soups) I for one won’t mind tucking into this Fig, Parma Ham and Buffalo Mozzarella Salad on a chilly day, accompanied by best-loved comforting roasts.
I used fresh rocket leaves, succulent ripe figs, parma ham and creamy buffalo mozzarella in my salad – and with drizzle of honey and some crispy croutons, I might have found my winter lunch staple right here…
Figs usually goes pretty well with peppery rocket and if I didn’t have buffalo mozzarella in the fridge I might as well served this salad with creamy goats cheese.
You can serve this with your own variety of salad dressings or reductions, but a good old drizzle of honey, makes for sticky sweet goodness all around.
Transform your dinner table with this beautiful Fig, Parma Ham and Buffalo Mozzarella Salad. It doesn’t only look pretty, it tastes amazing and would be a perfect addition to any Sunday lunch roast this winter.
How do you enjoy this seasons produce?
I’m also kinda addicted to parma ham…
Sssh… don’t tell anyone!
