Chef's Note
This is a very nourishing and vitamin-rich salad.

Fresh goat's cheese (chevre) is soft and creamy, but it becomes stronger, drier and more crumbly as it ages.

- 125 ml (1/2 cup) chopped Nuts
- 4 + 1 Figs
- A large piece of Goat cheese
- Curly leaf lettuce
- 125 ml (1/2 cup) extra virgin olive oil
- 3 tbsp. walnut oil
- 1 tbsp. chopped parsley
- The pulp squeezed from one fig
  1. Wash the lettuce and tear it up coarsely;
  2. cut the 4 figs into quarters without cutting through the base; open them up like a flower;
