Ingredients

  • 40g pine nuts
  • 20g salted butter, diced
  • 12 figs
  • 80g pecan nuts
  • 1/2 x 15g pack fresh oregano, leaves finely chopped
  • 1/2 x 25g pack mint, leaves finely chopped
  • 200g feta, broken into rough pieces
  • 7 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • 110g bag mixed leaves, (such as baby leaf salad)
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 125g blueberries
  • 100ml Marsala
  • 1 lemon, zest
  • 50g light brown soft sugar
  • 200g mascarpone

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200?C, gas mark 6. Spread the nuts out on a baking tray; roast for 5-6 minutes until a shade darker and aromatic (take care as they burn quickly). Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, chop the herbs (reserving a few whole leaves to serve). Put the feta in a bowl with 5 tbsp oil, the chopped herbs, garlic and chilli flakes. Mix and set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, toss the mixed leaves and red onion with the balsamic vinegar and remaining 2 tbsp oil. Layer on a large serving dish with the blueberries and roasted pecans. Season, top with the marinated feta and its marinade then scatter over the reserved herbs; serve immediately.
