¼cupfinely chopped fresh thymeoregano or combination
Grilled Cabbage and Toppings:
1head green or savoy cabbageabout 2 lb. or 7-inch diameter
½cupcookedchopped bacon (about 4 slices)
½cupcrumbled blue cheese
For dressing, whisk together vinegar, water, salt and pepper to dissolve salt. Stir in Figs, chives, and thyme. Stir in olive oil. Set aside for 1 hour while preparing other ingredients.
Prepare a grill for medium heat.
Remove and discard tough outer leaves from cabbage. Cut cabbage in half. Cut each half into 3 to 4 wedges (each about 2 ¾-inches thick), leaving the core attached to the leaves to hold each wedge together. Brush wedges on cut sides lightly with oil and sprinkle with salt.
Place wedges cut sides down, on grill over medium, direct heat. Cover grill and cook for 4 to 7 minutes or until edges are lightly charred and cabbage begins to soften. With grilling tongs or spatula, turn wedges over. Recover grill and cook for another 3 to 7 minutes, until edges char slightly and cabbage is crisp-tender.
Place cooked wedges on serving plates or a platter. Remove Figs with slotted spoon and scatter around cabbage wedges. Drizzle dressing on the grilled wedge salad and sprinkle with bacon and blue cheese.
