We really enjoyed this! It was our first time using Fuyu persimmons and they are delightful--they have the bite of an apple with the taste of a slightly starchy plum. Even my 11 year old liked it! Some crumbled goat cheese would take this salad over the top!! Perfect for Thanksgiving;)

I made this salad according to the recipe. It was fantastic! I will definitely be making it again. It is sweet crunchy and a little bit tangy. The dressing is a bit of a hassle to make but well worth it! Make extra and save some for later.:-) I used an immersion blender in the dressing to make it creamy.

Totally a keeper!! I couldn't find any persimmon at the store so I used nectarines and pears. Brought it to a dinner party and everyone loved it. There was nothing left at the end of dinner. I suggest to use scissors and cut mixed lettuce into bite size so it's easier to serve and eat.

Persimmons are the most underrated fruit I know, they are sweet, meaty and easy to prepare. The salad dressing is one of the best I’ve prepared. I used spring mix and baby spinach. Great salad.

This is so unique! It tastes and looks amazing. I didn't change a thing. A festive holiday salad.

I enjoyed this recipe. Refreshingly light and perfect for fall. When I make it again I will likely grill the persimmon to unlock its natural sweetness and add some smokiness and I would bump up the acid with a little cider vinegar. As stated in an earlier goat cheese would also add a nice tang to an already delicious salad.

Fantastic vinaigrette, uh, citrusette? We like it tangy so we added the juice of an entire lime. Really good. Our persimmon tree is loaded so I can see us enjoying this many times.

We really liked this! Different tasty salad. I forgot the pecans and it was still good but would be better with the crunch!
