According to Paul Simon, there are 50 ways to leave your lover.
I need to find 50 ways to serve up my fig crop!
Here's an absolutely delicious lunch I put together today, using what I had to hand.
Fig, Stilton and Walnut Salad
2 fresh figs per person
Stilton cheese, quantity according to preference
chopped walnuts, about a handful per serving
Wash figs, cut off stalks and halve. Place on a serving dish.
Crumble stilton over figs.
Sprinkle walnuts over figs.
Drizzle honey over figs.
It's that simple!
Serve with a salad of shredded little gem lettuce, finely sliced red onion and quartered tomatoes (mix of colours if you have them).
Drizzle a little balsamic glaze over the salad, maybe a bit of olive oil, and season.
And then ... enjoy!!!
This is a perfect little lunch for enjoying outdoors.
And here's an aerial shot I took in the kitchen before I traipsed outside with lunch. You could substitute the figs for pears or apples, if you can't get hold of figs. Or if you just don't like them.
I am growing to love their fine refreshing flavour.
So, peeps, that's 1 way to serve figs. 49 to go!!!
A la perchoine.
