A most delicious salad~
We found some small figs from Mexico.. (at Costco..not actually in Mexico..Costco ,Ottawa..)and picked up a small container..
At the same time we bought some Arugula..
I started Googling and came up with a mix of a few recipes I found..the basis was found on Chow.com..I added salt and pepper..the prosciutto:)
Prosciutto..(I used one of Jacques' small ones..)
Plate up ..and drizzle with this dressing~
2 tbsps EVOO
4 tsps white wine vinegar
2 tsps honey
2 tsps Country Dijon Grainy mustard
S and P..
Drizzle and enjoy~
I find it very pretty also~
Toasted Pine Nuts would be a plus~
I loved the huge fig tree at La Ferme De La Huppe in Gordes.
I tried growing one here..wintering it in the garage etc..unfortunately I gave up..my brugmansias and the fig..just came together way too late in the season for our climate..And they were so heavy to cart in..
I just gave up..not like me..But I did..
Must be heaven to be able to grow figs..and lavender..and herbs..all year long~
Along with the Olive trees..The figs were my favorite..I am growing an Olive BUSH in the house:)
It is a tree.. but growing quite randomly... and ...haphazardly! I do ♥ it though.
I'll make it go on vacation outside this summer..it should profit quite well.
I am not expecting olives..I just love looking at it~
The leaves are food enough for me .
Have a lovely weekend~
I hate to repeat myself here..as I have bemoaned the fact a few places today..but during the night..(pendant la nuit..) we are expecting 20 cms of freshly fallen snow~
I've mentioned so many times I love Mary Engelbreit....
I think ..I'll add some of my favorite daily quotes:)
This one is a keeper!
Aerodynamically,the bumblebee shouldn't be able to fly,but the bumblebee doesn't know that,so it goes on flying anyway.
