Usually this time of year the last thing I want to eat is a salad. Soup? Yes. Tea? Yes. Stew? Yes. Salad...mmm not so much. But I have the perfect combination of fall ingredients that will have you craving this unique salad. I tried this salad at a friend’s house and loved the idea of using persimmons in a salad. (Seeing as I have more persimmons at home than I know what to do with). I swapped out the pomegranate seeds that she used in place for pear and added the sliced almonds to add a hint of spice.
The Perfect Fall Salad
Yields: 1 serving
- 1 Cup organic mixed greens or baby spinach
- 1 Small roasted beet diced
- 1/2 Persimmon diced
- 1/2 Bosc pear diced
- Toasty sliced almonds
- Build your salad and pour on your favorite salad dressing. (I used balsamic vinegar with a bit of olive oil and honey)
Like I mentioned in my last post, the toasty sliced almonds really help bring all the ingredients in the salad together. It will keep you coming back for more!
