Fig and fennel salad with port dressing

I made this for Thanksgiving and it turned out well.


1 bottle ruby port
1/4 cup blsamic vinegar
1/4 cup fig butter
30 small dried figs halved

Combine above and reduce untill liquid is syrup like. Cool.

For the salad:
Fresh spinach
Thin sliced shallot or red onion
sliced fennel bulb

Toss all ingredients and serve. This salad served 6 adults and 3 kids.If you make it smaller drink 1/2 the port while watching the other half reduce.

4 Mean and Them,

Good morning.

I have a question. Truly a beautiful profile here.

Question: Fig Butter ?

1) Is this a compound butter prepared with dried or fresh figs ?

2) Is the fig butter referral, a Fig Curd or Fig Preserves ?

Thanks again.

The OP hasn't been here since 2-14-15. I wouldn't count on a response.
