This perfect fall-inspired fruit salad is made with Fuyu persimmons, pomegranates, and Satsuma mandarin juice. We garnished it with cilantro, green onion, and a little bit of red onion to balance out the sweetness of the persimmons and pomegranate. What makes this salad even better is that the produce is insanely fresh this time of the year and grown locally here in California!
This recipe comes from one of our favorite cookbooks, Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables. This fall inspired recipe bursts with flavor and combines farro, carrots, dried apricots, pistachios, and whipped ricotta.
