First Figs

Our lovely first figs made into a salad with olives and cantaloupe, tossed with balsamic vinaigrette.

Sweet and salty, deep brownish black and pink tones, the fig & olive play well together. I would guess they've been paired up in dishes for eons.

K. grilled chicken & corn, I made spinach pasta & a green salad
for a summer feast. With sweet tea, of course.


  1. Yum! Yours is the only sweet tea I've ever liked. We have been talking about doing some spinach pasta and just bought some last week :-)

  2. Yum.. all of this sounds wonderful! And how lucky are you to have fresh figs! :)
