Spinach And Persimmon Salad

Spinach And Persimmon Salad
“You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces just good food from fresh ingredients” — Julia Child

Don’t you agree? I’ve cooked complicated foods, standing for hours trying to do it the authentic way and the results have been rewarding. I’ve also cooked food within minutes and with right ingredients they’re just as satisfying as complicated ones. I recently brought home a bag full of homegrown fuyu persimmons from my friend’s backyard. Even though we love to eat persimmons just as is, I wanted to use them in a recipe. I’ve been thinking of making spinach and mandarin orange salad for a long time, since I didn’t have any oranges at home I searched for persimmon salad and came across this recipe (from myrecipes).

I loved the salad, you can’t go wrong with this recipe as they were made with fresh ingredients. I substituted glazed walnuts with roasted almonds as my kids are allergic to walnuts. Next time I’m either going to glaze the almonds or get honey glazed almonds for this recipe. The crunchiness from the persimmon was perfect with the sweet orange marmalade dressing. Even though this recipe seems simple they do provide a festive touch with their vibrant color and excellent taste. Enjoy!!!
