|To hard-boil eggs: Place eggs in saucepan large enough to hold them in single layer. Add cold water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Heat over high heat just to boiling. Remove from heat and cover. Let eggs stand in hot water about 12 minutes. Drain and fill pan with cold water; let sit 10-15 minutes. Peel and slice. (This can be done ahead. If making ahead, refrigerate cooked unpeeled eggs.)
Prepare other ingredients while eggs are cooking and cooling. Wash, slice, and core apples. Cut apples and dried figs into bite-size chunks. Wash and drain spinach.
To plate, divide ingredients evenly among 4 plates, top spinach with apples, eggs, dried figs, and croutons. Drizzle with dressing.
