Caramelized Orange and Fig Salad

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins
Servings: 2 -4


  • 1/2 cup honey more as needed
  • 10 ripe figs cut in half
  • 2 large oranges peeled and sliced into rounds
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 clove of garlic finely minced
  • salt and black pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta
  • 4 cups fresh greens I used baby arugula


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add the honey. Allow the honey to warm up for about 2 minutes and then add the figs, cut side down. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until the figs are nice and caramelized. Remove from the figs from the pan.
  • Add more honey to the pan if it seems to have reduced a lot, and then add the sliced oranges. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side or until they are slightly brown and caramelized. Remove the oranges from the pan and turn the heat off.
  • Whisk the white wine vinegar, garlic, and salt and black pepper into whatever honey is left. Then gently pour the olive oil into the pan, whisking vigorously until all has been added. Set aside.
  • Assemble your salad by layering the greens on a serving platter. Place the oranges and figs on top and drizzle with the dressing. Sprinkle with fresh feta and serve!
