The sweet-and-savory combination of the figs and earthy goat cheese will surely satisfy the palate. If you can't find dried figs, try swapping in dried apricots.

Great recipe to throw together an awesome salad! I don't use figs much but they complimented the goat cheese so well. My advice, cut down the amount of dressing with 2 cups of mixed greens. I had a lot accumulate at the bottom of my bowl by the time I was done. My husband prefers a lot of dressing on his salad so, it was perfect for him. The next time around, I just added another cup of mixed greens and it was perfect to my taste.
