healthy_eatingHere is a light healthy eating salad that works well as a starter or as a side dish to some grilled meat or fish.
Figs are a lovely way to add sweetness to your meals, and the small amount of blue cheese really packs in a lot of flavour.
Figs are high in fibre which keep you feeling fuller for longer. They also contain calcium and vitamin B6 – so they can be a great partner when you are trying to lose pregnancy weight.

Optional extras:

  • If you prefer, use feta or goat’s cheese instead of the blue cheese
  • Toss in a few fresh raspberries or sliced pear for more sweetness
  • Sprinkle with crumbled walnuts
  • Add some thinly sliced prosciutto
  • For some zing add some finely chopped spring onions
  • Pop in some homemade crispy croutons


  • 4 fresh figs, cut into wedges
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cups rocket lettuce or baby spinach leaves
  • 40g blue cheese, crumbled
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • In a small bowl, combine the oil and vinegar. Season to taste.
  • In a large bowl, place the lettuce, figs and cheese. Add the dressing.
  • Toss gently before serving into individual glasses.
