  • 3 heads fennel (each 3 to 3 1/2 in. wide)
  • 1 1/4 pounds firm-ripe Fuyu persimmons
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup 1/2-inch chunks Stilton or gorgonzola cheese
  • Salt and pepper


  1. 1. Rinse and drain fennel. Trim off tops; discard tough stalks and chop enough feathery greens to make 1/4 cup. Save remaining greens for other uses or discard. Trim and discard root ends and bruised areas from fennel heads. Cut fennel crosswise into 1/16- to 1/8-inch-thick slices. Combine sliced fennel and chopped fennel leaves in a wide, shallow bowl.
  2. 2. Peel and stem persimmons. Cut fruit crosswise into 1/8-inch-thick slices and put in another bowl. Add lemon juice and oil; mix gently. Holding fruit back, pour liquid over fennel. Mix fennel with dressing.
  3. 3. Arrange the persimmon slices over the fennel; sprinkle with cheese. Spoon salad onto plates and add salt and pepper to taste.
