  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil


  • mixed baby greens such as arugula, frisée, green oak-leaf lettuce, red-leaf lettuce
  • 8 fresh figs, halved
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted
  • 12 slices prosciutto, sliced paper thin


Combine all the dressing ingredients in a clean jar. Screw on the lid tightly and shake vigorously. Se aside.


Place the washed green leaves on a serving platter.


Top the leaves with the fig halves and the slice of prosciutto.


Scatter the pine nuts over the top and drizzle the dressing on top.






  • You can toss this salad together in less than five minutes.
  • Sometimes I like to crumble a little goats cheese over this salad too - the combination of goats chees and fressh figs is a match made in heaven.
  • Don't dress this salad until the very last minute because you want all the flavours of the salad ingredients to be fresh and distinguishable.
