Grilled Fig and Feta Salad

The best part about having a fig tree on the front lawn is you get to eat figs.  It's that simple, there's no mystery there.  Starting in the end of July until whenever the gods deem it so (October?) you get to munch on juicy, plump figs to your hearts content.  And should you ever tire of this treat in all it's uncomplicated splendor, then I have got a salad for you.

Somehow, as if it could get any better,  you wake up one day and decide to grill some figs.  And then you pick whatever else is growing in the immediate vicinity, in my case grape tomatoes, lemon balm, basil, chocolate mint and oregano, and dash it all together with a coating of honey, a splash of lemon and some feta cheese.  Oh.  My.  God.

I'm not posting a recipe because I just did.  But the main thing is grill some figs.  Brush liberally with olive oil, get that grill nice and hot, leave 'um on there for just a minute of two and see what happens.  Even if you don't have a fig tree.  Just buy some figs and do it.  Do it.  Do it now.
