Method

  1. Put the honey and thyme leaves in a small pan, then gently warm together for 2 mins – the honey shouldn’t get hot enough to bubble. Set aside to cool. Make a dressing by whisking together the cider vinegar and rapeseed oil with some seasoning.

  2. To serve, gently toss the chopped hazelnuts, fennel and rocket with the dressing. Divide the cheese between 4 plates, add a fig half to each, then a pile of the salad. Finally drizzle the thyme-infused honey over the figs and cheese.

This was absolutely gorgeous, used pea shoots for the salad and roasted the hazelnuts as opposed to toasted, at first I thought the dressing was a little strong but once it was plated up it all worked together really well. I'll definitly do this again VERY soon!
