Upgrade your fall salad with juicy roasted figs, toasted walnuts, and an oil-free maple tahini dressing. Perfect for a lighter lunch or side salad.
The other day I asked on Instagram if anyone could name a fruit sexier than a fresh fig.
My brother in law did chime in with a cheeky “Rambutan!” comment.
I also got several Passion Fruit and Pitaya responses, all very good contenders, boys and girls, but have you tried roasted figs before?
Now my main contender for the fruit beauty pageant.
They’ve got looks, taste, and a pretty intriguing backstory about being an inverted flower pollinated by a female wasp (I just did my research on this– did you know??).
Oh, and they’re absolutely delicious in this simple Roasted Fig & Arugula Salad with Maple Tahini that’s perfect to jazz up your fall meal prep!
