Here’s to the first figs at the farmer’s market two weeks ago. Try two delicious snacks that are a far-cry from a fig newton:
1) A toasted slice of dense walnut bread covered in fig jam, warm goat cheese, and fresh rosemary.
2) Spinach and mint salad with fresh figs, walnuts, bell peppers and cucumbers. Finish with a dressing made with a little bit of fig jam, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and black pepper.
