Fig and goat cheese salad extraordinaire!


I love, love, love this salad! I bring it to any party or event I can and people love it. I had something similar at a restaurant and then made my own with a few modifications. All ingredient amounts are sort of to-taste.


  • Equal amounts of spring mix and arugula lettuces
  • 1 or 2 containers of plain crumbled goat cheese, depending on size of salad (too much makes the salad sort of a mess)
  • Dried figs
  • Fresh dill
  • Shelled pistachios (unsalted)
  • Annie’s® Naturals Balsamic Vinaigrette (this dressing has the perfect consistency and flavor for this salad. Other store-bought balsamics have a different style. Use THIS dressing.)


  • Place lettuce and goat cheese into large salad bowl
  • Cut figs into small pieces (they are mushy and sticky so use sharp knife)
  • Pull or use kitchen scissors to cut fresh dill (avoid dill stems)
  • Chop pistachios a little bit (not crushed, just lightly chopped)
  • Add ingredients and Annie’s® balsamic dressing to salad and toss (go easy on dressing – more can always be added, too much dressing makes this a mushy mess)
  • Serve right away
