Pomegranate or Balsamic glaze (a substitution sauce is listed in Step 5)
Extra virgin olive oil
a small amount
Roast the pine nuts in a frying pan. Crumble the blue cheese into large pieces. Cut the figs into 4 pieces.
Place the salad greens on a plate and top nicely with the fig and ham.
Sprinkle the blue cheese and pine nuts on top and drizzle with the pomegranate/balsamic glaze. The glaze is pretty sweet, so only use a small amount.
Lastly, drizzle with olive oil. Optionally season with black pepper and enjoy.
Balsamic glaze: Balsamic vinegar 60 ml, Pomegranate or Apple juice 90 ml. Boil until reduced to 2 - 2.5 tablespoons and syrupy.
Pomegranate glaze is a sweet and sour sauce concentrated to the same thickness as honey.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made a salad using ingredients that would go well together without a doubt.
If the balsamic glaze thickens until about the thickness as honey when it cools, that's okay. Since it thickens when cooled, don't boil it too much. You can also use the glaze with sauteed meat etc. It is also tasty with ice cream or dessert.
