Orange & Fig Salad with Walnuts & Dried Cherries

The "Orange and Fig Salad with Walnuts and Dried Cherries" (page 98) is a great salad to make in the autumn or winter when you are most likely to find fresh or dried figs and seasonal oranges. The coconut and walnuts make this salad reminiscent of ambrosia, and turns an ordinary fruit salad into something very festive. The dressing is a simple splash of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar. I found the fruit sweet enough that the sugar was unnecessary, so you might want to taste first before adding. No changes necessary to keep within McDougall guidelines. J


  1. Figs grow on the fig tree in my backyard and are ripe in July.

  2. How lucky you are! :) I love fresh figs!!!
