This is probably the most festive salad I've seen yet --- all my favorite seasonal ingredients! I struggle with how to use persimmons, but I'm always tempted to buy them, so I'm excited about this, thanks Angie!

I never thought of using persimmons in a salad, I usually eat them on their own :) Looks like a great idea, especially combined with beets!

Liz That Skinny Chick Can Bake 13/12/15 03:44

Just gorgeous, Angie! I'm going to have to buy persimmons and actually eat them instead of using them for garnish.

Claudia 16/12/15 19:21

Now you have me at a standstill. I just can't do beets although I admire their beauty. But husband LOVES beets - so I try to serve them - you know - once a year! So maybe beetroot-persimmon salad for him and persimmon salad for me! You can't beat that lovely color mixture!

Vicki Bensinger 16/12/15 22:45

This salad is beautiful and would be so festive for the holidays!

Velva 17/12/15 03:01

I have a persimmon tree in my front yard. The birds enjoyed most of my fruit this season. I really enjoy persimmons and many Americans are not familiar with this tasty fruit. I typically serve them in salads too.

mjskit 17/12/15 04:42

Really? Beetroot with persimmon? What an unusual combination and so very pretty! You are so very creative my dear!
