Hello, hello! There is no denying it – from Arizona to Texas, it finally feels like Fall! That means it’s all about figs all the time here in the LK kitchen & we aren’t even slightly upset about it. Read how our wonderful Food Editor whipped up another Autumnal inspired recipe – this time a delicious fig salad – for you all! xoxo – LK
Hello & Happy Monday, friends! Constance here. So, I know we talk a lot about chocolate, and wine, and if you hang out with Lauren and myself long enough, you’ll know that French Fries are our favorite food, but there is a healthier side to this shop talk.
We’re on a bit of a health kick/detox in our house, and I’m trying with all of my might to get creative with it. You may or may not have noticed I have a strong affinity for figs. They seem to pop up in every other post. I just cannot get enough. Would I rather they be dipped in chocolate? Probably. But this little spinach & fig salad comes in as a close second!
-6 oz. Trader Joe’s Heirloom Red Spinach
-10-12 figs, quartered
-3 plums, sliced into thin wedges
-1/4 cup sliced almonds
-Oil & balsamic vinegar to taste
-In a large mixing bowl, combine spinach, figs, plums and almonds.
-Sprinkle with oil & vinegar.
-Mix to combine evenly.
