Combine complementary colors and textures to make this beautiful and delicious Spinach and Persimmon Salad!
People always tell me that they see persimmons in supermarkets and their local farmers markets but don’t know what to do with them. There are plenty of dessert recipes out there, but I prefer to eat them in a salad.
This salad combines some of my favorite seasonal flavors and would be a welcome addition to any holiday table. Fuyu persimmons are the firmer variety, and are loaded with vitamin C, which helps with the absorption of the iron from the spinach. No wonder they taste so good together!
