Ingredients
  • 100g walnut halves
  • 4 tsp clear honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 6 fresh figs
  • 200g Asda Gorgonzola
  • 78g pack rocket, washed
  • 3 tbsp Spanish olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180 Fan/Gas 6. Toss the nuts with the honey, salt and sugar until they’re coated all over. Put on a non-stick baking tray, keeping the nuts separate from each other. Cook in the oven for 3 minutes, then transfer to a piece of non-stick baking paper and allow to cool.

  • Trim and quarter the figs. Crumble the cheese into small pieces and divide between four plates, along with the figs, rocket and roasted nuts.

  • Whisk the Spanish olive oil and sherry vinegar together in a small bowl and season. Drizzle over the figs and serve immediately.
