Figs are one of the earliest fruit to be cultivated, both medicinal and magical. They are nutritional powerhouses, high on fiber, antioxidants, calcium and other vitamins and minerals. The ancients used them in fighting fevers and digestive disorders. Health benefits include lowering blood pressure, cholesterol and the risk of certain cancers.
They can of course be had plain, sweet and luscious, but here we celebrate them with an elaborately delicious recipe.
Our episode here features a grand and magnificent salad, part cooked, part raw, crafted in superbly creative fashion with figs at the center of things.
The end result is a medley of drizzling warm flavors bursting in your mouth, a bunch of fruit, veggies and greens rejoicing in a summer soirée.
