Ingredients

  • Port Vinaigrette, recipe follows
  • 12 fresh figs
  • 4 cups mesclun greens
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 ounces Stilton, crumbled
Vinaigrette:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups Port wine
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon walnut oil

Directions

Place the vinaigrette in a large saute pan and bring to a simmer on the grates of the grill. Add the figs and cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

Toss the mesclun greens in a large bowl with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a large platter and using a slotted spoon, place the figs on top. Sprinkle the salad with the Stilton and drizzle with some of the Port Vinaigrette.
