Fig salad with goat cheese

Initially I saw a salad that was featuring rhubarb but the rhubarb season had long gone so I figured I could use raspberries instead. I also had some goat cheese that needed to be used so the recipe came together really quickly. I had not made a fig salad with goat cheese before and I thought the raspberry dressing really lifted it from ordinary to something really special.

For the salad leaves I used butter lettuce. It is maybe an old fashioned kind of lettuce but it is still so delicious and way better then ice berg lettuce. Which I hate. I have probably used that in a recipe or two, but never in a more recent recipe. Of course you can substitute the lettuce for any kind you like.

Raspberry dressing

The bright red component of this fig salad with goat cheese is the raspberry dressing. I thought it was so good I would have loved to make it in batched but I do fear it won’t keep very well. So probably best to only make what you need.

It’s super simple to create; you just place all the ingredients together in a bowl and use a stick blender to blend them into a smooth dressing. Missing accomplished.
