Feast your eyes on this colourful warm fig, goat's cheese and sweet red pepper salad. Add fresh crunchy croutons for texture. The secret ingredient is temperature - warming the figs through in the oven to bring out their full flavour.
To make this salad for two you will need:
1 bag of mixed salad leaves
4 figs
one sweet pointed red pepper
soft goat's cheese
day old bread cut into cubes
pine nuts
olive oil
vegetable oil
a sprinkle of dried herbs - use whatever you have
optional - chilli flakes
Turn oven to 160ÂșC. Cut figs in half and lay on an oiled baking tray and drizzle lightly with melted butter. Cut the bread into cubes and coat with vegetable oil and a sprinkle of mixed dried herbs. Place the bread onto the same tray as the figs. Slice the pepper and coat lightly with oil. Put the red pepper into a separate oven proof dish and place in oven at the same time as the figs and croutons. When figs have warmed through (around 15 minutes), remove from oven.  Turn the croutons over. Keep the croutons and red pepper in the oven while you assemble the salad (you can turn the oven off). Take a handful of pine nuts and fry lightly for a few minutes in a little vegetable oil - if you like a little heat, add a few chilli flakes to the pan. Dress the salad leaves with your preferred dressing. We used a little olive oil, lemon juice and salt/pepper. Add the rest of the salad ingredients and enjoy.
