Two Delicious Fig Recipes

Yep, this fig tree was a sapling from a neighbor’s yard.  Now four years old, it has produced figs for the past three years and this year’s crop was bountiful.  But if you don’t have a fig tree, fresh figs are available in many markets.  Try these recipes.

Fresh figs are in season right now and the “Head Tomato” is sharing two yummy recipes today that she made from the fresh figs from her fig tree that lives in a container on her deck in the summer and then spends the winter hibernating in the garage.

Fig Salad

Two Delicious Fig Recipes


  • Arugula or other greens
  • Fresh figs
  • Proscuitto
  • Gorgonzola Cheese

Use any greens you like, and place a handful on each plate. Cut the figs in half and place 2 on top of the greens. Then place 2 slices of prosciutto on the plate. Salt/pepper to taste. Add crumbled gorgonzola and then drizzles with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Devine!

Figs for Dessert

Two Delicious Fig Recipes

This is so decadent.

Put a scoop or two of vanilla bean ice cream in each bowl.

Add at least two figs cut in half.

Drizzle with honey (we prefer raw honey)

And this may not be for everyone, but for added decadence, sprinkle on some crumbled gorgonzola of goat cheese. 

You’ll think you went to heaven.
