Figtastic Salsa

My neighbor not only has a fantastic fig tree (that I’ve been delving into for the past few weeks), but she also had success this year growing fresh tomatoes. The poor crater hasn’t even been in town to enjoy the fruits of her labor so to speak, but we certainly have (with her blessing of course!)

Thanks Cristina but now what to do with them? Figs and tomatoes….
You see, I wasn’t really big on figs until I found myself with a tree full of ‘em so pardon me if I went searching for recipes online. Didn’t take me too long to find this gem created by A Gluten Free Guide. I know it may sound strange but this salsa is the dogs bollix. Right now figs are in season so it’s the perfect time to make this with fresh figs vs. dried. For those of you who are regular readers here will also have seen my Fig and Goats Cheese Pizza from last week. Well worth a gander if you missed it.

    I’ve never had a fig – but that salsa looks GOOD!
