The Most Beautiful Christmas Fig Salad

Nutritional Information

Serves 4. 200 calories per serving

I’m always looking for ways to make Christmas dinners with my friends and family 10/10 beautiful, but only around 4/10 difficult, and with this really simple but undeniably beautiful salad, i’ve cracked it.

What you need:

  • 4 figs (I used 5, I bought a pack of 5 and didn’t want to waste one)
  • 1 packet low fat mozzarella
  • 1/4 packet of mint leaves
  • 1/4 packet of basil leaves
  • 1/2 small packet of rocket
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • Olive oil / truffle oil to drizzle
  • 1/2 of a lemon
  • Squeeze of honey

It’s so very simple:

  • Cut crosses into the top of the figs, going down about 3/4 of the fig, not reaching all the way down to the bottom
  • Squeeze the bottoms of the figs so they open up a little, this sill help them to stand up, and it looks really pretty
  • Put the figs onto a plate and dot the herbs, leaves and capers around them
  • When you’re ready to serve squeeze over half a lemon and a squeeze of honey
  • Pretend you’ve slaved away in the kitchen all day long
