Fig and Balsamic Dressing

With the last tablespoon from a bottle of Te Mata Just Fig sauce I made a little salad dressing . I'd like to have experimented further, perhaps by adding some oil, a little mustard, or a some crushed garlic but the bottle is empty now. Oh well, there's always the Food Show next year to replenish my supplies.
It's been fun experimenting with Te Mata Just Fig sauce as it's  versatile and can be used in sweet as well as savoury dishes.
Here's the basic dressing using only two ingredients. The fig sauce added fruit and sweetness. It would go well drizzled over a simple salad composed of mesclun, walnuts and sliced pears. Or simply poured onto some vine ripened sliced tomatoes.
Whisk together:
1 tablespoon of fig syrup ( I used Te Mata Just Fig Syrup)
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
