Fresh Fig Salad

Posted in Paleo, Salads, Whole30 by

What better-suited recipe to start this all off, than a recipe containing part of the blog’s name – a salad!  Fresh figs are AMAZING and their sweetness really pops with this flavour combination. I look forward to the farm trucks in the summer that offer fresh & juicy figs!!

 

 

I love to make my salads with a variety of textures and flavours. Adding in nuts gives it a crunch factor, while the fruit gives it sweetness, and the feta gives it a little bit of saltiness. This is a super quick salad to whip up and bring to all your summer bbq’s!
