Persimmon Pomegranate & Burrata Salad

I feel like I cannot share a recipe without addressing the elephant in the room, but at the same time I am not one to share my political views all over the internet. But to say the least, I am sad and disheartened by the results of Tuesday’s elections.

That being said, cooking (and really baking) has always been a great coping mechanism for me. And so I am going to share my recipes as planned. Especially since I’ve created Thanksgiving theme, I think its important to recognize there are still things to be thankful for.

So, today I am sharing a salad recipe to serve on Thanksgiving or really any fall day, featuring persimmons. Persimmons are a beautiful and delicious fruit that are only in season for a few months of the fall. It’s hard to describe what they taste like, it’s similar to honey or dates, but with a different texture depending on ripeness.

Yesterday I shared my feelings on appetizers on thanksgiving (necessary), and I have a similar feeling about salads, necessary. I think is great to have something fresh and light on a plate that usually is filled with rich and heavy sides.

My family is definitely split on this issue but I know at least a few of them will be happy to see this salad on the table!
