This fresh and vibrant Persimmons salad is a wonderful addition to any holiday meal! Bright Persimmon slices paired with dried cranberries, mixed greens and creamy goat cheese are all drizzled with a maple vinaigrette to make a healthy salad the whole family will love!



4 ounces of green butter lettuce, chopped

4 ounces of red leaf lettuce, chopped

2 persimmons, sliced

1/2 cup roasted sweet potato

4 ounces crumbled goat cheese

1/4 cup dried cranberries

2 tablespoons pepitas

1 pink lady apple, sliced thin

1 tablespoon whole grain dijon mustard

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper


Cut sweet potato into 1/2″ pieces and roast at 400 for 20 minutes -.  Remove from oven and let cool slightly

Make dressing by whisking together ingredients in a small bowl

Toss greens, goat cheese, pepitas, and cranberries in a large serving bowl.  Place sliced apples and persimmons on top.  Drizzle with dressing and serve.


Look for plump persimmons with smooth, shiny, orange skin free of cracks or blemishes. Buy ripe persimmons only if you plan to eat them within a day or two, and store them in the fridge. Unripe persimmons can take a few days to ripen— keep them at room temperature until ripe.
