Spinach Salad with Figs and Feta Cheese

Spinach Salad with Figs and Feta Cheese

Serves 4 to 6

If you like, broil or grill the figs and the sugars on their surface will become deliciously caramelized. The crunch of toasted pecans balances the creaminess of the feta cheese in this rich salad.

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound spinach, stemmed
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cored, seeded and julienned
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup pecan pieces, toasted
  • 8 fresh figs, halved lengthwise
