Lots of fresh figs have been showing up in the grocery store. Bought a case last week, and this was the first recipe we made with these fresh figs.

Grilling is definitely a good technique, which really gives some nice caramelization to the taste. We grilled the figs in the pan, and it came out delicious. Then just simply whipped up a very tasty vinaigrette, tossed it with greens. A delicious salad was ready to serve.
