Mixed Green Salad with Goat Cheese and Figs

I was in Whole Foods yesterday and saw the most delicious looking fresh figs. Fig season is very short so I knew I had to make something with figs. This salad is one of my favorites. It was inspired by a meal we had at the Girl and the Fig in Sonoma, California. I substitute dried figs when fresh are not in season.

Salad: Mixed Greens, Sliced Fresh Figs, Goat Cheese and Pecans
Dressing: Whisk together a tablespoon or so of Dalmatia Fig Spread (sold at Whole Foods), lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. I don't have exact measurements I just eyeball it and taste.
