i love this salad. the pomegranate seeds look like jewels. the persimmons are a slightly sweet and crunchy interesting counterpoint to the greens and the leeks. very festive and a nice light addition to a holiday menu.
pomegranate persimmon salad
serves 6 - 8
12 ounces mixed baby greens, rinsed and dried
1/3 pomegranate, seeds only (about 1/3 cup)
1 large or 2 small fuyu persimmons, peeled and sliced
1 leek, finely sliced
2TBSP pomegranate cherry juice
3TBSP seasoned rice vinegar

(a touch of dijon mustard or some minced shallots is nice here but i usually skip it because i am overwhelmed in the kitchen at this point) assemble ingredients. whisk up the dressing. pour. toss. serve. bon appetit.
