Each year, at the end of the summer, the fig hunting begins. In our area, the figs are damn hard to find, and when I find them, I try to cook them in every possible way until I get tired of them.

Well, this year after trying a delicious tart with goat cheese and figs, I still had a few(obviously), so I decided to make a delicious salad with figs, arugula, prosciutto and mozzarella.

After spending a lot of time in Italy, this salad became one of my favorite. Fresh, full of flavors and easy to make, this combo is a perfect brunch or even a delicious lunch.


For the dressing:

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • pinch of salt
  • fresh pepper

For the Salad:

  • 100g baby arugula
  • fresh basil leaves for garnish
  • 4 ripe figs, quartered
  • 125g fresh mozzarella, sliced and torn into pieces
  • 8 – 10 proscuitto slices 


Step 1: Combine the oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper and whisk.

Step 2: In a large platter, place the arugula, top with proscuitto, mozzarella and figs and drizzle with dressing. Garnish with basil leaves and serve.
