Don't you think figs are one of the most perfect salad ingredients? I love them when they can be harvested in season (late summer/autumn) ripe and fresh from the tree or at the local markets. This fig salad is one of my favourites.

Preparation

Combine the washed rocket, figs and goat’s cheese on a platter. Add the tomatoes (if using) and scatter some pomegrante seeds and crushed walnuts. Pour over the olive oil and sprinkle with mint. Add a good squeeze of lemon.
