The fig really shines as the hero of this dish and is a prime example of how fruit can fit perfectly into a savoury dish.
Add the onions, thyme, coconut oil, salt and pepper to a roasting tray and toss the ingredients until the onions are well coated. Roast for 25 minutes or until soft and some of the edges have started to char.
In a mixing bowl, add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar and cinnamon and mix well. Add the figs to the bowl and coat with the mixture.
Use a large bowl to assemble the salad. Layer the salad, starting with the rocket, then the red onions, figs and finally the goat’s cheese. Top with crushed hazelnuts and serve.
