3. Dice persimmons into a shape slightly larger than the pomegranate seed

4. Mix pomegranate seeds and diced persimmon gently with a spatula.

K8lyn07's Thoughts

By k8lyn07

This salad will keep refrigerated for about three days, but it's best eaten fresh.

A vinaigrette made with a light vinegar such as sherry, champagne, or white balsamic and a buttery extra virgin olive or a nut oil would complement these fruits nicely, or maybe some agave nectar as a sweet and light dessert.

The options for green leafies are endless—sauteed and/or fresh escarole, romaine, little gems, or any other chicories would create a bright, colorful, and seasonal salad.

I am Russian and the word for persimmons in Russian is also kaki. I live in California, but I only see kaki in stores in winter.

Boy does that look delicious! I can't wait until we start to get pomegranates around here. If only I lived in California - there's no pomegranates in northern Oregon!

I just realized that persimmons are kaki. I grew up in Japan and we had a kaki tree in our garden.
