Make this fresh fig salad with a punchy pink peppercorn dressing for a quick veggie starter. Finely grated Grana Padano also gives a creamy but piquant contrast to the sweet figs
- Serves: 4 persons
- 12ripe figs, halved
- 30g Grana Padano, finely grated
- 1tbsp white wine vinegar
- 3tbsp olive oil
- 1tsp pink peppercorns, crushed
Step 1Lay the rocket and figs, cut-side up, on a platter. Put the remaining ingredients (except the pink peppercorns) in a blender and whizz until smooth (or use a stick blender). Add a splash of just boiled water and whizz again until emulsified.
Step 2Spoon the dressing over the figs then sprinkle with crushed peppercorns to finish.
