Recipe: Grilled Fig, Goats Cheese & Pear Salad


fig goats cheese salad

This is such a delicious salad, and a big plate of food for just over 250 calories.

Usual fig and goats cheese recipes often contain walnuts and honey as well; I opted to leave these out as the fat and sugar from these would dramatically bump up the calories. A chopped up pear adds a nice bit of texture, and apple cider vinegar for the dressing keeps it low calorie and ultra nutritious while still having a delicious flavour.

Admittedly there’s not a lot of protein here, but a pot of greek yogurt for afters would sort that out, or this could balance out a day that’s higher in protein elsewhere.


  • 100g fresh figs
  • 50g goats cheese
  • Half a pear, chopped
  • Iceberg lettuce leaves, torn or shredded
  • Tbsp apple cider vinegar



Cut the figs into quarters and the goats cheese into small chunks or slices, and place under grill on a sheet of baking paper.

Grill for around 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the figs start to caramelise.

Toss the lettuce leaves and pear with the apple cider vinegar.

Arrange on a plate and pop the figs and goats cheese on top.
