What to do with fresh figs? If you're in the mood for salad, try this recipe, which teams them with creamy cheese and refreshing watercress.
- Halve or quarter the figs, depending on size. Cut off the stems.
- Crumble the cheese.
- Arrange the watercress on a large platter and scatter over the walnuts. If not using fresh, lightly toast walnuts for 10 minutes in a medium-hot oven - 180C.
- Arrange the figs and the cheese, then drizzle over the vincotto, olive oil, lemon juice and seasoning. Toss very gently with your hands and serve.
