Persimmon Pomegranate Mixed Green Salad

  1 rater(s)

Loaded with vitamins, polyphenols, minerals, and other antioxidants, this persimmon pomegranate salad is just in time for fall. The persimmon has a warm sweetness that plays off the vibrant, tart pop of the pomegranate arils. The buttery avocado and crisp mixed greens only add to the wonderful contrast of existing flavors and textures. Finally, you dress all of the ingredients in an herbaceous, garlicky dressing that is aromatic and lively. We hope you love it as much as we do!
