This is my favourite salad at the moment. it feels so seasonal and fresh, whilst giving me a much needed boost of raw fruit and veg and healthy fats. The combination of the sweet figs and tangy tomatoes works really well with the light dressing, and the colours are just stunning. It is also really filling so it makes for a great lunch or dinner, or for an impressive side at a dinner party! Make the most of the delicious, sweet figs whilst they’re in season!
