Adding dried figs to salads

glacier206 | Oct 17, 2011 05:36 PM

How do you go about this? I have both Turkish figs and Mission figs. They seem too tough to just chop them and add them straight in. I tried reconstituting them in hot water, but they turned mushy. Was my water too hot? Did I soak too long? Should I just soak them in vinegar instead? (I've done that with currants before and it worked well.) Please share your technique.
