Recipe by  

"A sweet and tangy fall salad with a bit of crunch and nuttiness tossed in from the pecans. I love pecans so I often double the amount of pecans."

We really enjoyed this! It was our first time using Fuyu persimmons, and they are delightful--they have the bite of an apple with the taste of a slightly starchy plum. Even my 11 year old liked it! Some crumbled goat cheese would take this salad over the top!! Perfect for Thanksgiving ;)

I made this salad according to the recipe. It was fantastic! I will definitely be making it again. It is sweet, crunchy, and a little bit tangy. The dressing is a bit of a hassle to make, but well worth it! Make extra and save some for later. :-) I used an immersion blender in the dressing to make it creamy.
