Fig Bacon Jam Vinaigrette


  • 4 ounces kale stems removed + thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons roasted almonds chopped
  • 3 Orchard Choice or Sun-Maid Golden Figs stems removed + sliced
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs quartered


  • Warm bacon fig jam with apple cider vinegar in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir to combine. In a steady stream, whisk in oil until combined.
  • In a salad bowl, drizzle on the bacon dressing, using tongs to toss. When cool to the touch, massage the kale with your hands until the volume of the kale decreases by half.
  • Either place the bowl in the microwave to warm for 45 seconds to warm the salad up, or heat over medium in a skillet.
  • Toss the chopped almonds and figs into the salad. Portion out the salad into salad bowls and place hard boiled eggs on each serving.
