Cream Cheese, Dried Fig, and Walnut Spread

* 6 large dried figs, stems trimmed, quartered
* 8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
* 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
* 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
* 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onion tops

1. Add figs to the container or a food processor; finely chop.
2. Add in the cream cheese; process until combined.
3. Add in the walnuts and salt; pulse just to blend.
4. Scrape mixture into a bowl.
5. Add in the scallions, if desired; stir to combine.

Note–to finely chop figs in a food processor, lightly brush or spray the inside of the processor bowl and metal blade with vegetable oil; if the figs are unusually dry, reconstitute them in boiling water for 10 minutes, drain, and blot dry before chopping.
