Fresh figs and goat cheese pair well together, especially with spicy arugula and a tart balsamic vinaigrette! Figs grow here in the Pacific Northwest quite easily and need to be used soon after harvest. I like to make fresh salads with the fig harvest, and, to preserve them, I make fig popsicles and fig jam! Enjoy this salad with grilled balsamic chicken breasts for a balanced late summer meal. 

Ingredients

Salad

8 cups baby arugula (5 ounces)
6 fresh figs quartered
¾ cups raw walnuts
4 ounces soft goat cheese crumbled

Dressing

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons maple syrup
¼ teaspoons sea salt
2 cloves garlic crushed
