A delicious Fig and Asparagus Salad with Grape Vinaigrette. Using seasonal ingredients and creating magic with them on the plate. This one is my favorite salad to pair with a glass of wine in the weekend.
We are progressing pretty nicely on the salad challenge, aren’t we? One week done and 6 posts dusted. I am feeling rather happy with myself. Now only three more weeks to go. LOL. But thank you for all the fantastic feedback on all the channels. I can see you folks are enjoying this almost as much as I am. And next in the series is Fig and Asparagus Salad. A super favorite at home.
Fresh Figs are in season right now and I love eating them as a snack, making jam out of them. And then of course, how could I not use them in the salad series. There had to be a salad with them.
This Fig and Asparagus Salad was put together purely on the basis of what I saw on the store shelf while browsing. The Asparagus looked tender, fresh and cheap (surprise), there were beautiful black grapes and I had some pickled olives begging to be used. Toasted walnuts and feta cheese from my pantry and we had a delicious seasonal salad.
In case you are wondering where are the grapes on the plate, they are in the dressing. Yeah, it is fun to sneak in stuff and flavors sometimes. That is why I love playing around with dressing.
