So here's a fruity salad for you...

It came about after I had some leftover, cooked turkey steaks and some bacon - and raided the fridge for whatever else I could find to go with it. I grabbed the figs while thinking they would work so well with the salty, smoky bacon. And then I found the raspberries. I couldn't decide which to use, so I threw both on. And finished it with some crisp, shredded little gem lettuce and a drizzle of pomegranate molasses and olive oil dressing. 

It's sweet, salty, smoky and tart. It's soft, crunchy and aromatic. It's probably one of the best salads I've ever eaten.
