Spinach salad with dry figs


It’s about time to talk about fig. Those who know me well might smile right now, because I love figs. During summer all I do is waiting for figs to be ready, keep spotting fig trees here and there saying “Oh here’s another fig tree, yes!” and when ready everyday is fig day! My dad gathers lots of them and dry them for winter time. So right know there is a big jar of figs in my kitchen which I’m afraid will empty soon.. 

This salad was made with lovely Family Nostalgia Greek olive oil!

  • 200gr. spinach
  • 2 spring onions

  • Cut the spring onions in thin slices and add them as well.
