Amy’s Napa Valley Salad with Fig, Avocado, and Blue Cheese…

This is an amazing salad that reminds me of Napa Valley.  It has rich, earthy flavors with fig and blue cheese crumbles, complimented by buttery slices of avocado, topped with a honey dressing.  A perfect lunch served with a glass of red wine. 🙂

Amy’s Napa Valley Salad (Servings 1)

  • 4 dried figs sliced
  • spinach leaves
  • Danish blue cheese crumbled
  • onion sliced
  • 1/2 avocado sliced
  • salt & cracked pepper

Honey Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2-3 teaspoons of red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of honey

In a small pan grill up a little bit of onion.

Whisk together your dressing and slice up the figs and avocado. To prepare the avocado, I cut in half scooping out one side with a spoon. I place the half face-down onto a cutting board and thinly slice vertically.

On a plate set out a bed of spinach leaves. Spoon on the grilled onions. Fan out your avocado on top. Scatter your figs and blue cheese. Lightly salt and pepper the salad. Pour the honey dressing over top.

A simple and delicious salad…

Enjoy!
