Fig and Fruit Salad



  1. To toast walnuts, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread nuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in preheated oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice so nuts do not burn.
  2. Meanwhile, place rice vinegar, walnut oil, garlic, mint, salt, and pepper in a blender container or food processor bowl. Cover and blend or process until nearly smooth.
  3. Combine the spinach and toasted walnuts in a large bowl. Drizzle spinach mixture with dressing; toss gently to coat. Place spinach in 10 serving bowls or plates. Arrange orange and/or grapefruit slices and figs on greens. If desired, add goat cheese.
