This easy, low-carb fig salad with creamy Gorgonzola and peppery arugula is a beautiful and elegant dish that's perfect for a light lunch or a summer salad. Makes for easy summer entertaining if you prep everything in advance and assemble just before serving. I didn't feel the need to toss this salad as I was afraid of damaging the gorgeous figs.

  • Arrange arugula on a salad platter, place figs on top, then top with Gorgonzola cheese and scatter the crushed pistachios over to garnish. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad and serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

Whether or not you use 1 or 2 tablespoons of orange blossom water will depend on the strength of your orange blossom water and your preference. Start with 1 tablespoon, taste, and then add 1/2 tablespoon until you can just taste a hint of orange blossom in your dressing.
