Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Create about 8 small piles of grated cheese (about 1/2 tablespoon's worth each, spaced at least 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Flatten slightly
And bake for 4 to 5 minutes until lightly golden. Use a spatula to transfer the cheese to a plate before the disks cool into crisps.
Cut the figs in half. Place the cut side down on the baking dish that was used to make the cheese crisps. The oily residue from the cheese should keep the figs from sticking. Roast the figs in the 400-degree oven for 5 to 6 minutes. Put the figs atop the salad greens and dress with your favorite dressing. Add the crisps to the side of each individual plate and add the walnuts if desired.
