Figs are in season! They are great as dessert or snacks, however I think they really shine in salads. Similar to last week’s recipe, you can enjoy this fig salad with goat’s cheese and prosciutto as a summertime lunch or serve it to share in your next dinner party. The saltiness in the goat’s cheese and prosciutto will bring out the sweetness of the figs. If you can find smoked almonds, they will add overall complexity of flavour, however they are not essential and you can use dry roasted almonds. This recipe is gluten-free but there’s no point in trying to make it dairy-free or vegan, sorry!
Call it classic or call it cliche, beetroot and goat’s cheese are meant to be together. This roasted beetroot, goat’s cheese and pistachio salad is great for sharing or eaten as a main meal with a little extra protein. Good options include eggs (your way), lentils, tuna, salmon (smoked or canned) and grilled chicken. If you don’t have the time or patience to roast the beetroot, you can use the pre-packed cooked variety.
