Sweet, tender fig is wonderful with sharp feta cheese and crunchy Romaine lettuce. This complex salad would be overdressed in anything other than this simplest vinaigrette.
- 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
- 2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups quartered fresh figs (about ½ lb.)
- 2 cups torn romaine lettuce
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
- ¾ cup vertically sliced Vidalia or other sweet onion
- 3 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
- ¼ cup (1 oz.) crumbled feta cheese
- Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk.
- Add figs, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, and mint; toss gently to coat. Sprinkle with cheese.
