Indulge yourself in this beautiful fig and pistachio creation from my dear friend Mimi Holtz, author of her food blog Mimi Avocado . She happily shared this healthful dish for the California Fig Fest San Diego. Mimi created a lovely summer salad using California figs to make a delicious dish with couscous. Also, check out her large collection of avocado recipes that will entice you to cook and use them more often in your recipes.
Mimi says, “Here is a salad that can be served warm or cold. Beginning with Israeli couscous, it’s savory and sweet at the same time, matching green onions and fresh basil with cinnamon, allspice and sweet figs. Add some crunchy pistachios and you have a tasty salad. California Fig and Pistachio Couscous is the perfect side dish for a late summer supper or potluck.”
