Try this grilled figs and arugala salad recipe from Fabio Viviani. We love adding fresh figs for a swet touch to a peppery salad.


  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • juice from ½ lemon – freshly squeezed
  • ½ pound baby arugula
  • 8 fresh figs -halved
  • ¼ cup candied walnuts
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Cooking Directions

    Grill the figs on a cast iron griddle/pan until the sugars start to caramelize. Whisk together the oil, juice, salt and pepper in a salad bowl. Add the arugula and figs and fold gently to combine. Divide the salad into 4 and top each serving with some candied walnuts.
