A quick google showed this recipe from Bon appetit (NYT Cooking also has the same recipe):
5 ounces fresh figs (about 6 large), stemmed, quartered
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon aged balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
Generous pinch of sugar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Combine figs and 1/2 cup water in medium saucepan. Bring mixture to simmer over medium-low heat, mashing with potato masher until mixture softens and coarse puree forms. Transfer fig mixture to strainer set over bowl. Press on solids to extract as much mixture as possible. Whisk lemon juice, both vinegars, basil, and sugar into fig puree. Whisk in oil. Season vinaigrette with salt and pepper.

If you'd like it sweeter you could probably just add more sugar to it
