 Ingredients List

  • --------------------------FOR THE CITRUS DRESSING--------------------------
  • 1/2 c Lemon juice
  • 1/2 c Orange juice
  • 1/2 c Lime juice
  • 2 Lime leaves
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tb Honey
  • 1/2 c Rice wine vinegar
  • 1 c Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper; to taste


4 Black mission figs
2 tb Extra-virgin olive oil
2 tb Balsamic vinegar
3 oz Vermont goat cheese
2 tb Mascarpone cheese
1 1/2 tb Lemon curd
Salt and freshly ground
-black pepper; (to taste)
4 Sheets phyllo dough
2 tb Butter; melted
4 Blanched chives
4 bn Cape Cod greens or mesclun
4 sl English cucumber; sliced
-lengthwise, (1/4 " thick)
1/2 c Small currant tomatoes; (red
-& yellow)

To make the dressing: Place the lemon, orange and lime juices in a
saucepan. Simmer until the liquid is reduced to 1/2 cup. Remove the lime
leaves and chill the juice.

Place the juice in a blender with the eggs, honey and rice wine vinegar.
Slowly blend in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. (To avoid using
raw eggs, use pasteurized or coddled eggs) To make the salads: Wash the
figs and cut each m half. Mix together the oil and vinegar in a bowl. Toss
the figs in the oil and vinegar. Grill the figs for 1-2 minutes per side.
Let cool and chill until ready to use.

Mix the goat cheese, mascarpone, lemon curd, salt and pepper. Place 2 T. of
this mixture on a fig half and then place the other fig half on top. Repeat
until all four figs are stuffed.

Lay out the pastry sheets. Brush with butter and wrap each fig in one
pastry sheet. Twist into a purse shape, tie with string and bake at 350
degrees until golden brown.

Once baked, remove the string and tie each dumpling with the chive. Wash
the greens and spin dry. Place each cucumber slice on a salad plate. Place
a handful of greens on top of each cucumber, then wrap the cucumber around
the greens. Place the dumpling on each plate. Garnish with the tomatoes,
dressing and freshly ground black pepper.

Dean Moore usually serves this salad with a truffle dressing but
substitutes a citrus dressing here as it is easier to make.
