Vinaigrette:

  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups Port wine

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.

Heat grill to high. Heat oil in a medium saucepan on the grates of the grill. Add the onion and cook until soft. Add the Port and red wine and cook until thickened and reduced to 1/2 cup.
