Garden Fig Salad
Fresh figs and haricots verts from our garden always signal the arrival of fall. This light, healthy salad celebrates the season with crisp, sweet flavors that pair wonderfully with Jordan Chardonnay.
Pair with: Jordan Chardonnay
Preparation time: 30 minutes
To make the dressing, combine sherry vinegar, mustard, thyme, shallot, salt and pepper in a blender at medium speed. While blending, slowly drizzle ¾ cup Jordan Extra Virgin Olive Oil until emulsified. Refrigerate and keep for up to one week.
In a nonreactive bowl, toss ears of corn with remaining Jordan Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Aleppo pepper and salt. Grill corn on medium high heat until it begins to brown. Let the corn cool to touch, then slice kernels off of the cob and set aside.
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and prepare an ice bath. While water is coming to a boil, quarter figs and set aside. Blanch beans in boiling water until slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Shock beans in ice water and drain.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Add salad dressing to taste and gently toss. Serve immediately.
