This persimmon salad can be served as a light meal or entree. You can add some cooked prawns for a simple variation.

In season from late February to early June, persimmons are visually stunning and packed full of natural sweetness, making them one of those special gifts of nature that will tantalise your senses.

Method

  1. Remove the stalk/calyx then peel and slice persimmons into thin pieces.
  2. Divide the salad and persimmon between four plates.
  3. Top with parmesan shavings, toasted almonds and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to serve.

  • Yum ! I’m not one who likes balsamic vinegar and olive oil on my salad, but that’s easy to leave out.

  • This looks like an interesting and yummy salad. I’ve never eaten persimmons so I’m not sure of flavour or what I should expect. Would perhaps prefer to try this kind of salad made for me first!!!

  • I have to say persimmons are the only fruit or veg I can say I honestly hate, I put it in my mouth and start dry retching, not sure why. Sorry to all those persimmon lovers (my hubby is one of them)
