This salad has an unusual mix of ingredients that complement one another in a unique way. There is an earthiness to it that we love as we move into the cooler weather.
Fig, Corn and Radish Salad with Honey Lime Dressing
Combine mache, or mixed baby greens with arugula, and a few thinly sliced radishes.
Cook about 1 cup of corn in a grill pan over high heat, so it is seared. Shake pan often to avoid burning it. Cool slightly, and add to the other vegetables.
Toss with dressing and mound on individual serving plates.
Add fresh figs, quartered, and a few very thin slices of red onion to the plates.
Sprinkle with black pepper and enjoy!
½ cup olive oil
juice of one lime (or more if they are tiny)
a splash of orange juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk together the ingredients and pour over the salad mixture.
