Persimmon-Walnut Oil Salad

This simple salad is made special with the use of high-quality ingredients. Choose crisp, globe-shaped Fuyu persimmons, which remain firm even when ripe--making them an ideal ingredient for fall salads. The heart-shaped Hachiya persimmon, which does not become sweet until its flesh is quite soft, is better suited for baking.
