Fig and Tomato Orzo Salad

I feel like I say this about any in-season produce item, but I’m in love with figs.

Juicy tomatoes, sweet figs, bold blue cheese, fresh herbs, and crunchy walnuts come together with a sticky drizzle of balsamic glaze, to create a Summer picnic, pasta salad masterpiece. | spachethespatula.com #recipeI think I literally jumped for joy when I saw them start to show up at markets and grocery stores a few weeks back. Yeah…I truly do get that excited about food.

You know who else is obsessed with figs? My mom. Every single time I go home to Florida, she’s like “Rachael, are figs in season? Can you make that fig thing?” I’ve made “that fig thing” more times that I can count. But to be fair, it’s easy as hell, and tastes amazing…

This fig thing also tastes amazing 😛

Remember when I said you’d see more cherry recipes? I really just can’t help myself. I buy way too many cherries in the Summertime, and then bake them and cook them into everything. Remember when I stuffed them in sandwiches, last year? Mmmmm *drools* …Annnnd I do maybe too much of pairing cherries with chocolate…

I am terribly obsessed with tiny tartlets. Okay, I know I have way too many tartlet recipes on this blog…but they’re so. freaking. adorable!
