Figs are often served with yogurt and honey as a dessert. For this salad recipe, yogurt and honey come together in a tangy dressing for sweet summer leaves. The figs are grilled quickly on the barbecue for an extra bit of charred flavor.
How to choose figs
Although we refer to them as fruits, figs are actually a conglomeration of tiny flowers held within their fleshy structure. A perfectly ripe fig is a true pleasure that doesn’t last long, so aim to pick some at their peak. Look for figs with soft flesh that yields to a gentle touch. If there is any sign of mushiness or mold, leave them behind.
