This is a really filling salad. And its also a sweet salad which I loved. Im a fan of figs and they were a really nice combination of flavours with the spices and coriander.

I even questioned myself about posting this recipe, because he hated it so much.But I ate the left overs the next day and I still liked it the next day.

He didn’t like the honey in it. Um what honey? lol I think he meant the sweetness of the fig. I swear this man thinks he has an allergy to fruit!Continue Reading
