Until recently fresh figs to me were the forbidden fruit. I could go to a restaurant and see them on the menu and instantly want all of it. And i always wanted more. But for some reason I never thought that I could actually purchase the fruit myself and use it for my own personal enjoyment. That is until the other day when strolling around TJ’s I ran into a GIANT box of these fresh delicate beauties. I knew whatever I was going to use them in, it had to be easy, not overpowering and light enough to compliment the not overly sweet and delicately textured fruit. A salad would have to do.
And so on that note, here are some beautiful fruity figs paired beautifully with broiled pork tenderloin over a bed of greens and goat cheese with a little balsamic glaze drizzled over to give it that extra kick.
