I made this last year for Thanksgiving, and again for a Christmas potluck...it was outstanding, especially for the batch where I bought top-notch supportive ingredients (orange marmalade, candied pecans, etc.) I grew up with a persimmon tree, and my siblings swore they hated anything with persimmons, but they loved this salad... the mix of textures and flavors is very well balanced in this recipe.

We got spinach and persimmons in our CSA share one week and I got lucky finding this recipe. I've used it for a few different events and it gets rave reviews every time!

A delicious blend of flavors and textures. A festive salad that is also beautiful on the plate.
