Fruits, nuts, Fuyu persimmons, and two kinds of chicory (frisée and radicchio) go into Lipton and Daniel's generous but light salad. Toss it at the last minute so it stays crisp.
Serves 12 to 14 (makes 5 qts.)
1. Make vinaigrette: Put shallots and vinegar in a bowl with 1/4 tsp. salt and let sit 20 minutes to 1 hour. Add 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper; whisk in oil.
2. Put frisée, radicchio, persimmons, pomegranate, and walnuts in a large bowl. Toss with as much dressing as you like (you may have some left over) and add salt and pepper to taste.
