Hachiya Persimmon Arugula Salad with Truffle Oil and Lemon Juice

Labels: { , , } | © 2014 |

Colourful, fresh and full of flavours, this autumn salad features sweet tender hachiya persimmons, bright peppery green, crunchy juicy pomegranate seeds and rich earthy truffle oil. Persimmons not only lend a seasonal touch to the salad, the sweetness also complements perfectly the spicy arugula and tart pomegranate.

  • 2 Hachiya persimmons, peeled and sliced
  • 50 g Arugula leaves
  • 1 Small red onion, cut into rinds
  • 1 handful Pomegranate seeds
  • Walnuts, optional
  • Truffle oil
  • Lemon juice
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Peel the hachiya persimmons and slice them finely on a mandoline. Peel and cut the red onion into rings.
  2. Arrange the arugula leaves and sliced persimmons on a serving plate. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and top with onion rings. When ready to serve, drizzle with truffle oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. | © 2014 | | © 2014 |

Beautiful salad Angie! I love persimmons but have never tried adding them to a salad before. Love the idea, they sound fantastic with arugula and pomegranate seeds.

I love persimmons, but they are almost impossible to find here. Your salad looks great, I am in a salad kick lately so this definitely looks like something I would like right now :)

I'm loving the beautiful colors and wonderful flavors in this salad. It looks like a piece of artwork.

Wok with Ray 1/11/14 22:39

Colorful, beautiful, and refreshing salad. This is perfect as persimmons are starting to show up in the produce markets.

jasna varcakovic 2/11/14 00:29

Must be wonderfully aromatic with truffle oil. It's salad season (warm weather) down under, so I'm bookmarking this!

Geri Saucier 2/11/14 01:46

A beautiful fall salad. I love the persimmons an pomogranate seeds:)

Monica 2/11/14 02:12

Great recipe! I've never had persimmons in a salad and I love the colors. As the leaves fall and the days gets darker, I think eating colorfully like this really helps our mood. The fact that it's tasty and nutritious food helps, too. : )

The Yum List 2/11/14 03:32

It seems hard to find the perfect persimmon. They can be wonderful when they're perfectly ripe.

Beena 2/11/14 06:08

Yummy and healthy salad

Anything with arugula has to be amazing! I'd love to try this gorgeous salad.

Elisabeth 3/11/14 00:10

Angie, I love salads with arugula...and your creative, colorful, healthy, and delicious salad has just the right sharpness from the arugula, and the tangy sweetness from the persimmons, combined with the red onions, the walnuts, and the truffle, and elegant, as well! xo

Gloria Baker 3/11/14 00:45

Look beautiful and delicious!!

ahu @ ahueats 3/11/14 01:11

I never thought to use persimmons in a salad - brilliant! I know exactly what I will be doing with the hachiya sitting on my counter for dinner tomorrow! :)

Shashi at SavorySpin 3/11/14 01:57

I adore persimmons - but have only had them in sweet drinks and treats - loving the sound of this savory salad Angie - what a wonderful idea that truffle oil is!

Unknown 3/11/14 04:36

I just made a salad with persimmons, too! They're a perfect ingredient for fall!

Katerina 3/11/14 09:19

Truffle oil has such a unique flavor just like the mushroom! Delicious salad Angie!

Alida 3/11/14 10:56

I have just missed all the lovely persimmons in Italy. They are still not quite ready there. Probably one or 2 more weeks to go. I will probably buy them in the UK. They are ever so nice and addictive. To me it is like eating jam. A salad with them is a great idea.

Joanne 3/11/14 13:16

What a gorgeous fall salad! The persimmons are the perfect juicy touch!

Emma | Fork and Good 3/11/14 16:36

Beautiful! Love the addition of persimmons, in fact all the flavours in this dish have got my mouth watering!

Tricia Buice 3/11/14 17:58

Very nice Angie! The colors are beautiful. I love the sound of the tart, sweet and peppery arugula all together. Super!

fimere 3/11/14 20:49

This sounds so good! Great way to use persimmon.

Evelyne CulturEatz 3/11/14 21:51

I so adore persimmons and what a great idea to serve it in a salad like this. Truffle oil is a great and interesting choice, got to try it.

The Blonde Chef 3/11/14 23:25

Persimmons are one of my favorite fruits, but I never have them because they are always so difficult to find! This is definitely motivation to look harder!

grace 4/11/14 00:21

what a refreshing salad! i don't think i've had the pleasure of eating persimmon, but am definitely inspired to seek it out!

Koko 4/11/14 02:51

I had my first persimmons this year in New Zealand, and I fell in love with them! It was a different variation to this one...I think it started with an F, but man, did I enjoy them! I made a chia seed jam with them and it was so lovely! I can't wait to return home and make a beautiful salad like this, now that I know what I've been missing out on!!

Bakericious 4/11/14 03:06

yum yum, looks so colorful and bright!

Juliana 4/11/14 05:02

This is such a beautiful salad Angie, I like the idea of arugula and sure sounds and looks delicious!
Thanks for the inspiration...have a wonderful week :)

Lisa Ho 4/11/14 05:49

Love persimmons. beautiful salad :D

tigerfish 4/11/14 10:24

I have given Hachiya variety a miss for a few times now, choosing Fuyu instead over Hachiya. Hmmm, maybe I can try Hachiya for once?

Kitchen Belleicious 4/11/14 13:55

what a wonderful autumn salad. The flavors are refreshing but warm just like you want this time of year. I love the use of the truffle oil and lemon together!

Christine Ho 4/11/14 14:17

Beautiful salad, Angie. I love both persimmons and pomegranate seeds. They are really good for making salad.

Norma Chang 5/11/14 01:06

Persimmons are in season now and I am indulging.

Food For Tots 5/11/14 02:55

I don't mind to have salad everyday. This one is surely to be on my to-try list.

Liz That Skinny Chick Can Bake 5/11/14 03:28

I don't think I've ever tasted a persimmon, though they grow around here! Persimmon pudding is a holiday dish for many of my friends around here...but we didn't experience it growing up. Maybe I should just start with your lovely salad!

mjskit 6/11/14 04:08

I love this salad!! And the most exciting thing is that I have ALL of the ingredients! I'm growing arugula and it's quite abundant right now and I just bought a flat of persimmons, so I'm really looking forward to giving this salad a try. Thanks Angie!

Unknown 7/11/14 09:38

Beautiful and colorful salad. I would love to have this. :)

Sokehah cheah 9/11/14 08:43

Wow, what a refreshing and attractive salad. Love the colours!

Barbara Bakes 9/11/14 15:29

I have never eaten a persimmon. I need to change that and give this gorgeous salad a try.

My Inner Chick 16/11/14 16:48

Did you know that "Persimmon" is one of my favorite words. I just like how
it rolls off the tongue!
This salad is magic! xxx LIKE YOU.
