Fresh or dried, figs are a great way to add more fiber to your diet. Did you know that just one serving of six figs provides 5 grams of dietary fiber and nearly 500 milligrams of potassium? You’ll also get some calcium and magnesium, all for about 125 calories.

Serve this winter salad as a first course at dinner, or for a light lunch. Want more fig recipes? Be sure to check out Roasted Figs with Honey and Gorgonzola.
