Persimmon, Pear, and Pomegranate Salad

Persimmon, Pear, Pomegranate and Avocado Salad with Walnuts and Feta I Rainbow Delicious

This persimmon, pear and pomegranate salad is so delicious! Do you like persimmons? If you don’t know the answer to that question I highly recommend you get your hands on a persimmon while they are still in season and figure it out! My hope is that you enjoy them as much as I do, they are such a Fall treat and are delicious in salads, like this persimmon, pear and pomegranate salad. I also love to put them in my smoothies as they add sweetness without using refined sugars.

This salad highlights some of my favorite Fall flavors: persimmons, pomegranates and pears with the addition of avocado, walnuts and feta. The dressing is a simple balsamic with a little fresh citrus to give it a kick.
