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.
