  • Summary

    As wonderful as dried figs are, fresh figs -- available from June to October -- are an even more intoxicating experience, especially when pan-seared and paired with fresh greens and nutty, crunchy hazelnuts.

    Ingredients

    • 5 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
    • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh shallots
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts, skins rubbed off, coarsely chopped
    • 10 cups mesclun (baby mixed greens), about 5 ounces
    • 8 small (or 4 large) fresh ripe figs, stems trimmed, halved lengthwise
    • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese, such as Roquefort or Gorgonzola
