Dried Fig Salad

(Kuru Incir Salatasi)

Dried Fig Salad
2 dried Turkish Figs, cut in bite size
4-5 leaves Romain salad, break off in bite size
1 small tomato, peeled, diced
*Turkish Tulum Cheese, or goat cheese or feta cheese
1 tsp sesame seeds, lightly roasted
4-5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp pomegranate paste

First, place the Romain on a service plate. Arrange the tomato, fig and Tulum Cheese. Sprinkle some sesame seeds. Drizzle some olive oil and pomegranate paste all over the salad. Serve immediately.

*Tulum Cheese

Tulum cheese is traditionally made from sheep’s milk and ripened in a goat skin bag (tulum in Turkish). Tulum is aged for at least three months. The taste was salty and slightly sour. Tulum Cheese great with the Lavas Bread and Salads:)
