Marinated Fig, Pomegranate and Mozzarella Salad

Pin it to save it for later ! 

Marinated Fig, Pomegranate and Mozzarella Salad, is so simple and so delicious, just simple as that! Sweet, a little tangy, peppery and creamy salad is ideal for a starter or a side dish.

Why am I talking and posting salad recipe in the season of autumn, where entire food blogging community busy posting Halloween and Diwali recipes? Keep in mind, each recipe has it's own story :)  In my parts of the world Figs season appears from late summer until fall/autumn, I brought luscious figs in season three-four weeks ago, prepared this easy salad, devoured and clicked ready to post on JCO.

To transfer the pictures I removed SD card from my camera, before I load them unfortunately I lost the card and turned the place upside down to find it but no luck. But recently I have been doing Diwali Clean up, and guess what ? I found it :) So here I am with lost and found Marinated Fig, Pomegranate and Mozzarella Salad !

Let me grab a opportunity to thank you folks from AKI Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil for sending a generous package of their product to say hello to us. What a fabulous product it is, we are loving it !

You will need :-

  • 4-6 ripe fresh fig 
  • 3-4 tbsp. pomegranate seeds
  • 150 g light mozzarella cheese 
  • 80 g rocket leaves 
  • 3-4 balsamic vinegar 
  • 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (I used AKI Brand )
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Few mint leaves
  • salt and pepper  

Method :-
Prepare vinaigrette by mixing vinegar, olive oil , lemon juice , salt and pepper.
Trim the fig stalks , cut each them lengthwise into four wedges.
Place cut figs in a large dish and scatter lemon zest and drizzle vinaigrette. Leave it to stand for 30 minutes at room temperature.
Drain the mozzarella and slice it. Chop the mint leaves and combine with cheese, salt and pepper.
To serve the salad, arrange cheese slices around the marinated figs, scatter with rocket leaves and drizzle some olive oil.
Sprinkle pomegranate seeds and mint leaves.
Enjoy !
