Rose Dressing

Chop the rosemary very finely and put it in a small bowl with the cardamom. Add the rose water and honey, and stir until the honey dissolves. Add the grape juice, balsamic apple cider vinegar and cold-pressed olive oil, and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Let the dressing infuse for at least 15 minutes.

Cut the fig in half and slice the red onion into very thin rings with a mandolin or sharp knife. Cut grapes in half and add to the other cut ingredients, fig and red onion. Wash, rinse and spin the leaves in a spinner until bone dry, then add to the bowl. Mix the salad with the dressing and serve.

Bon appetit!
