I once got a huge box of fig from one of my friend. Ofcourse, we all enjoyed eating the fresh fruit but this time I wanted to try making something with it. We love eating salads in our family. So quickly put together a few ingredients that I had on hand to make a simple salad. This fresh fig salad was refreshing and tasty. The slight sweetness from the fruits, sourness from the lemon and the spiciness from the chilies was perfectly balanced. If you get fresh figs, do try this recipe. Enjoy this Fig Salad as such or with tortilla chips.

Thanks for this recipe, very much appreciated. Easy, delicious, improves with some chill time. We were lucky to have figs fresh from my inlaws’ tree and researching ideas for a salad led here. Fresh, clean, interesting, seasonal. Yum!
