Persimmon Pomegranate Salsa

Labels: { , }

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2014 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com




This slightly spicy winter salsa recipe from My Recipe, which I modified a little, uses the winter favorites of persimmons and pomegranate in place of tomatoes. Serve over smoked fish, chicken or steak, or as an appetizer atop cheese or crackers with a dab of sour cream. It can be made up to one day ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before serving.

  • 1 Large ripe persimmon, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • Pomegranate seeds from 1 medium pomegranate
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 1/2 Cucumber, deseeded and diced
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp Chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Combine diced persimmon, pomegranate seeds, onion, cucumber and chopped parsley in a medium bowl.
  2. Combine lemon juice, ginger, chilli flakes, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Stir together and drizzle over persimmon mixture. Toss to coat.

I just discovered this fall that I LOVE persimmons! This is a totally different way to prepare them than I've ever done and it looks gorgeous and sounds delicious! :)

Nice and colourful; big debate here (between some Australian nationalities) is should persimmon be eaten while hard or wait until it becomes soft. Love it anyway!

I love pomegranates, but I'm new to persimmons (but crazy about them!!). It's great to see another use for persimmons, especially in a savoury way!

Kitchen Belleicious 6/1/15 19:55

what a flavorful salsa. It has the best of both worlds in that it has the texture of salsa but the sweetness of a vinaigrette almost. I love it

Nazneen Hamilton 8/1/15 15:04

So beautifully colourful! I've been trying to find decent persimmons here and all I can come across are mushy, over ripe ones or totally unripe. So, needless to say, I haven't had any this season. Love this salsa, great seasonal idea.

[Reply]
Claudia 8/1/15 15:24

This truly is a winter salsa. It is so pretty - I welcome pretty food in the dead of winter. It's below 0 degrees F, snowing and would love some of this "pretty" to come to my table. Happy New Year, Angie! May it bring all good things!

[Reply]

Angie, you've done it again -- put together ingredients I would not have thought to combine but now that I see it I'm wondering why I haven't!

Couscous & Consciousness 12/1/15 02:17

Awesome idea, Angie. I often make a salsa like this to go with things like fish tacos using mango or pineapple, but in winter I'm always at a bit of a loss when those things aren't around. Using persimmon is a great idea - pinning this so I remember it when the season comes.

[Reply]
Gingi Freeman 14/1/15 17:40

Wish I'd seen this back when I was getting tons of persimmons in my weekly local veggie co-op basket!! I ended up throwing some away because I couldn't think of anything beyond, "Make persimmon bread" lol... - www.domesticgeekgirl.com

What a fun mix of flavors! This recipe would be fun added to some roasted pork shoulder tacos, love sweet and savory with pork. Sounds delicious, Hugs, Terra
