Persimmon, Blood Orange, and Pomegranate Salad

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Score an "X" into the top of the pomegranate. Break apart into quarters. Working in a bowl of cool water, immerse each quarter; use your fingers to loosen the seeds from the white membrane. Discard peel and membrane. Drain the seeds; set aside.
  2. Cut each persimmon in half; remove core. Slice into 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick slices.
  3. In a large bowl combine mesclun and green onions. Drizzle 1/2 cup of the Pine Nut-Persimmon Vinaigrette over musclun; toss to coat.
  4. To serve, arrange mesclun mixture on six chilled salad plates. Arrange persimmons and oranges on top of greens, tucking a few in and under leaves. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds. Pass the remaining Pine Nut-Persimmon Vinaigrette.

From the Test Kitchen

*

If desired, substitute two pink or red grapefruit for the oranges or use a combination of oranges and grapefruit. Or use 2 to 3 cups bottled sectioned citrus fruit in place of the oranges. Drain the fruit before adding it to the salad.

Prepare Pine Nut-Persimmon Vinaigrette as directed. Place in an airtight container. Seal; chill for up to 3 days.

Fuyu persimmons: Short, squatty, eaten when crisp, are the ones to use in this salad. (The acorn-shaped Hachiya must ripen to a gelatinous softness to be edible and are the ones usually used for baking.) Fuyu persimmons are enjoying a burst of popularity, with October through December being their prime season-so substitute sliced and seeded papayas or mangoes if persimmons are unavailable.

When selecting Fuyu persimmons, look for ones that are yellow-orange in color and firm to the touch. Fuyus will stay firm for two or three weeks at room temperature. Eventually, after about three weeks, they will soften somewhat like the Hachiya. At this stage, some people feel the Fuyu's sweetness reaches its peak. Their crispness can be prolonged by refrigeration if the temperature remains close to freezing (32 degrees F) but once the fruit is returned to room temperature, it will soften. Surprisingly, persimmons stored at normal refrigerator temperature, about 40 degrees F, will actually deteriorate faster than if stored at room temperature (55 degrees F.)

Pine Nut-Persimmon Vinaigrette

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Remove the core from one large ripe Fuyu persimmon; cut in half. Scoop out pulp (you should have about 1/3 cup), discarding skin. Place pulp in a blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Add olive oil; red or white wine vinegar; toasted pine nuts; blood orange peel; blood orange juice; honey; shallot; mustard; cinnamon; and pepper. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Makes about 1-1/4 cups.
