Everybody needs a go-to summer salad recipe, right?! This fig almond parmesan salad is it!
My parents have two gorgeous fig trees in their backyard, and let me tell you, I’M JEALOUS. I love figs. Dried or fresh, they are one of my favorite fruits. And in a salad, they bring just the right punch of fresh sweetness.
The avocado and parmesan add delicious creaminess to this salad that otherwise would feel ~blah~ without it. Definitely don’t miss out on these ingredients!Print
This fresh summer salad is light, refreshing, & healthy! Packed with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and plant-based fats & protein, just the combo you need to feel satisfied. Add some salmon or chicken for extra staying power!
- 2–3 cups butter lettuce
- 1 avocado, sliced
- 3–4 fresh figs
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 handful freshly sliced Parmigiano-Reggiano
- 1/8 cup sliced almonds or walnuts
- desired dressing of choice (my favorite? Just a mix of olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice)
Slice avocado, chop almonds, chop celery, and cut figs into bite-sized pieces. Add atop lettuce greens onto each of the two servings.
Top with any remaining ingredients and drizzle with dressing upon serving. Enjoy!
What’s your favorite way to add figs to your meals? I also love a good fig and goat cheese flatbread pizza…that may have to be on the menu next. 😉
