How to choose the best ingredients for a salad with figs and gorgonzola cheese
Arugula: Arugula will be suitable for any, even the spicier because they are also in such versions. Remember to wash it well and dry it before adding it to the salad.
Fresh figs: figs are only good fresh because they are juicier and less sweet and definitely have a different taste than dried ones. And in this version, they perfectly match gorgonzola because it lends its spicy flavor.
Walnuts: I like walnuts in the kitchen, but you can replace them with pecan nuts if you want. It will also be a good substitute.
Gorgonzola cheese: Gorgonzola is a very characteristic Italian cheese. It is perfect even for tiny allergy sufferers. Because, during the 3rd fermentation, it loses the properties of dairy products such as lactose, so it can be consumed by people intolerant to dairy products.
Balsamic vinegar: Balsamic vinegar is an essential ingredient in many dishes, especially salads, and it must be of good quality. The label should especially pay attention to whether there are any admixtures such as water or sugar. An authentic balsamic vinegar is made only from a blend of grapes. Therefore, its quality depends on the aging in the barrel.
