I celebrated my 1 year anniversary of moving to the centre of town a week ago. So it is quite fitting that this Fig Salad came to being after I bought the figs from one of the many fruit and veg street vendors in the city centre.
Their stalls are always bright splashes of colour within the concrete of the city and it is a treat to see how the produce change as the seasons progress. The price for the figs was insanely cheap. 4 Punnets for R10 (1 US dollar). You could easily pay R30 or R40 for 6 figs at the retailers. I must have asked him about 3 times if that was the correct price. I was late as it is but there was no ways I was not going to get these beauties so bought them, walked back home to drop them off and was even later for my appointment. But it was so worth it!
