Fresh Fig and Avocado Salad with a Manuka Honey Dressing

Even though the weather is getting cooler, there is always an appetite for a healthy colourful salad. Being it the main dish or a side salad, it can be enjoyed at anytime of the day!


  • a bunch of fresh mixed lettuce leaves, we used a mix of rocket and purple leaf lettuce
  • half an avocado, stoned and sliced
  • 1 fresh fig, peeled and quartered
  • 1 fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese, drained well and sliced
  • drizzle of manuka honey dressing (see below for recipe)
  • some pomegranate seeds


  • Salad bowl
  • Small bowl for dressing
  • Colander
  • Spoon


Simply set the base of the salad with your lettuce and spread the other ingredients all over, finishing with a drizzle of the manuka honey dressing and scattered pomegranate seeds. You can also add some sunflower seeds for more nutritional value.

Top Tip: The easiest way to clean a pomegranate is to half it and with the back of a spoon, tap its outer shell so seeds will fall easily.
Manuka Honey Dressing 
Mix all together the following ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons manuka honey
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 tsp lemon juice
  • 14 tsp dried mustard
  • salt and pepper

  1. Saw you on Utube. Interested in those cultural dishes with the flavorful spices. I am in Texas. I am looking for salad dressing ideas and whole food plant based dishes using the flavors of Malta. Thank you. Have a good day.
