Fig and Green Tomato Salad

[Note: I got this from a really nice Sustainable Agriculture Web site.
I've made a local copy of the basic recipe in case the original goes away.]

from Cookbook Author & COPIA Cooking Instructor, Marie Simmons

Serves 6 to 8

This simple salad recipe adapted from Fig Heaven: 70 Luscious Recipes for the World’s Most Luscious Fruit (William Morrow 2004) is a fresh way to make the best of the end of summer tomatoes and start the fall season with delicious figs.



  1. Combine the tomatoes, figs, basil and onion in a serving bowl.
  2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Drizzle the salad with the olive oil and splash the vinegar over the top.
  4. Gently fold the ingredients together.
  5. Serve at room temperature.
