Zesty Fig Dressing
September 27, 2016
You can really have fun & customize this dressing by using an equal amount of just about any kind of chopped dried fruit in place of the figs. I've used raisins, cranberries, apples, Medjool dates, apricots & even prunes. Each will impart it's own special flavor & health benefits to the dressing.
Yield: makes enough for 2 large dinner or 3 to 4 small side salads
1 In a small bowl; briskly whisk maple syrup through pepper till well combined.
2 Stir in yogurt & whisk till smooth & creamy.
3 Add figs & stir till well combined. Let sit at least 20 minutes while preparing salad(s).
4 Apply dressing to salad(s) & sprinkle each with desired amount of almonds.
5 Cover & store leftover dressing in the refrigerator, but don't go past the expiration date on your yogurt.
