Green Salad With Figs and Honey Lime dressing
200 gm Mixed Salad Leaves
Juice of 1 Lime
3 tablespoons extra Virgin Olive Oil or any mild flavoured Vegetable Oil
1 tablespoon Honey
Salt to taste
Freshly ground Black Pepper
Whisk together the oil, lime and honey. Season with salt and pepper. You can add a bit more lime or honey depending on how sweet or sour you like your dressing.
Cut the figs into 4 pieces each. Combine the salad leaves and the figs in a large salad bowl.
Pour the honey lime dressing over the salad, toss and serve.
You can add the zest of 1 Lime and/or a tablespoon of fresh Orange Juice
Instead of the figs I sometimes use crisp Pears or Avocadoes.
