A fun salad with lots of unusual flavors. I used plums instead of persimmon (since I didn't have persimmon on hand) and I couldn't taste the plums so don't repeat my mistake. Other than that it was an easy delicious salad. Read More

I made this for a group of friends tonight and it received rave reviews. I doubled the recipe and had to use green onions because my grocery store didn't have shallots. Otherwise I made it exactly as written. It was a huge hit. Read More

This is a wonderful way to enjoy raw persimmon and get all the great enzymes from fresh fruit and vegetables. To make it a complete meal I added left over roasted chicken and topped it with feta cheese instead of Parmesan. Even my two year old loved it! Read More

I just made this for a group of 20. I substituted mangos for the persimmons as they were not in season yet here in Montana. It was a hit everyone loved it. I forgot the cheese at the end but it wasn't missed. I also used less dressing overall and less shallots as I was crying too much from the mincing! I toasted the walnuts myself so that they were warm too. (I also didn't bother with the salt/pepper) Read More

Very nice recipe. I added chicken to make it an entree but didn't make any other changes. I received a permisson (or rather a persimmon) for my birthday and didn't know what to do with it. Thank you Leesean. Read More

Wonderful salad. Used Fuji persimmons which are firmer and crisper than than the other persimmons which are used in jams and baked goods. Dressing was a bit lemony so I added more oil. Read More

I love arugula but added some other lettuces that I had on hand. I couldn't find persimmons but added avocado to pear. The dressing was just right. Read More
