At our Lamb and Fig Feast, I made a variety of dishes including a Cantaloupe Salad with Calimyrna Figs. Calimyrna figs have a pale yellow skin with a buttery and nutty flavor similar to a Chardonnay. Special thank you to the California Fig Association for contributing the delicious fruit.
Cantaloupe Salad with Calimyrna Figs
1 cantaloupe cubed
1 lb Calimyrna figs, sliced
Fig balsamic vinegar
Gently fold the cantaloupe and figs together in a large bowl. Plate the salad and drizzle the fig balsamic vinegar on top.
