Salad Topped with Blackberries, Fig Goat Cheese & Nuts with Fig Balsamic Dressing

Fact: I eat a salad almost every day for lunch, and you know what... it's not something that gets tired. There are so many ingredients, dressings, toppings, and variations. Sometimes I get stuck on one particular salad and eat it for a week straight. Sometimes I try out new ingredients and never use them again.

This month however, I have been totally stuck on my Fig Balsamic that I picked up from the Unrefined Olive while at the Ottawa Food & Wine Show... you know, the one I also used on my amazing Fig, Prosciutto & Goat Cheese Crostini? It has paired well with almost every ingredient I have thrown at it, but nothing has compared to the combo I discovered this week; blackberries and fig goat cheese. The sweetness from the berries plus the tartness from the balsamic are all evened out with the creaminess of the goat cheese... sooo good!
