Unfortunately, the recipe does not tell you when to add figs or if they need any preparation themselves, other than being cut. Luckily I watched the video and learned what I needed to know. Maybe more people would try this recipe if they knew what to do without taking time for the video.

I had a difficult time cutting the celery thinly enough so it would curl after being in the cold water. It was good...a nice change to a regular lettuce salad.
