Figs take center stage in this seasonal salad.
This seasonal salad is a refreshing treat year-round, but its earthy ingredients really sing in the cooler weather. Antioxidant-rich figs and grapes add sweetness, and iron-rich spinach contributes a green, leafy crunch. Topping this salad with walnuts and roasted seeds adds protein, and omega-3 fatty acids. Place this dish on your holiday table, and its vibrant colors and flavors will wow your friends and family!
