**Fig & Watermelon Salad with Honey Vanilla Cashews**
For the Honey Vanilla Cashews (makes 2 cups):
2 cups raw cashews (sprouted and dehydrated if you have the patience and time)
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 tablespoon melted ghee
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Fig & Watermelon Salad with Honey Vanilla Cashews (serves 4):
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
Freshly ground black pepper
8 cups mixed lettuce greens
8 black mission figs, halved
¼ small watermelon, deseeded, rind removed, and thinly sliced
2 servings Porkitos (start with 6 ounces prosciutto)
½ cup Honey Vanilla Cashews
-First things first: Preheat the oven to 350°F so you can bake your sweet-and-savory nuts.
-Dump the cashews in a large bowl…
…and add in the honey, ghee, vanilla, and salt.
-Mix until well coated. If available, employ child labor.
-Spread the sticky nuts in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
-Pop the tray in the oven for 6 minutes…
…and then stir the nuts around…
…before toasting them for another 6 minutes or until golden brown.
-Remove them from the oven to cool on the counter.
-In the meantime, bake the Porkitos if you haven’t already.
-The zesty lime salad dressing is a breeze to make: In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, and mustard with a pinch of salt and some pepper.
-Dump the greens in a large bowl and toss with the vinaigrette.
-Divide half of the greens onto four plates and cut up the figs and watermelon.
-Place half of the fruit on top of the greens, before adding the rest of the greens. Top with the rest of the fruit, crunchy Porkitos, and Honey Vanilla Cashews.
-When I plate my salads, I like to layer dressed greens with the other components. That way, you get a taste of all the ingredients with each bite. The one exception? Crunchy ingredients (e.g. Porkitos, bacon bits, nuts, etc.), which go on top. I add ‘em last so they stay crispity-crunchity.
