Let's see what we need.
Now let's make this salad.
Start off by adding the lettuce to the bowl. Then place the figs so they are all facing cut side up. Now add the goat cheese, candied pecans, and the pomegranate seeds and sprinkle with the chives.
Season the salad with salt and pepper. Drizzle with about 3 tablespoons of the extra virgin olive oil and 1 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar to the salad and toss. Now give it a taste and adjust the seasoning and even add more vinegar if you want. The salad is now ready for you to eat. I really love this salad and am sure you will, too.
