You can make this hearty and comforting with a wide range of seasonal vegetables. I like to serve it over a scoop of barley. Barley is a great and health grain, very balancing.
Fig and Basil Salad Dressing
A stunning addition to any mild lettuce salad.
2/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup golden balsamic vinegar
about 6-7 ripe fresh figs
1 shallot or 3-5 scallions
a sprinkle of sea salt
lots of freshly ground black pepper
a sprinkle of fresh herb leaves (thyme, oregano, basil, rosemary, parsley all work well)
Put all ingredients into a food processor. Give it a couple pulses until well mixed and smooth. Use right away over a salad of mild lettuce leaves like romaine or butterhead. This is also great on a sandwich - particularly with arugula as the green!
We also do a Workshop each summer on Making Salad Dressings.
