Persimmon Beet Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette

Salad Ingredients:

  • 3 firm Fuyu persimmons, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 medium-sized beets, greens cut off
  • 5-6 ounces of mixed greens
  • Seeds from 1 large pomegranate

Dressing ingredients:

  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • Juice of half a pink grapefruit
  • Juice of half a tangerine

Procedure:

First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

Wrap each beet loosely in foil and place on a cookie sheet. Roast until tender, about 45 minutes, depending on size. Let cool. Remove foil, gently wipe skin off with a paper towel and thinly slice.

Put salad, persimmons, beets, pomegranate seeds, on a plate.

Whisk oil, vinegar, and citrus juices until combined. Drizzle over salad and enjoy!
