Author Notes: This was one of those salads that just sort of composed itself when I was looking for a fruit salad to complete a brunch menu. I based it on what I had on hand, and it became one of my favorites -- unfortunately, since fresh fig season is pretty short around here, there's a limited period of time when I can have it. But oh, it's wonderful.Kayb
