Fall Into Flavor With This Arugula Persimmon Salad

  1 rater(s)

Persimmons are some of the most underused fall produce items. Some people are scared of them and other simply don’t know what to do with these sweet fruits. The beautiful rich orange enhances the the appearance of a simple salad, and it elevates the flavor profile. The citrusy dressing sets all the flavors off and makes each bite better than the next.

Note: If you can’t find pea shoots, just omit that ingredient and add an extra cup of arugula instead.
