I had never really tried Persimmons before, but a lady in our ward gave us some so I had to find a recipe to use them in. Persimmons are great, I can't believe it took me 26 years to actually try one. We will definitely be eating them again soon.
1 cup pecans, candied (1 Tbsp sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 Tbsp butter)
1/2 cup swiss cheese, grated
2-3 ripe persimmons
2-3 ripe pears
Dressing:1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 Tbsp orange marmalade
1 tsp oil
Chop and wash lettuce. In a frying pan, heat butter and toast the pecans with sugar and salt until golden brown. Set aside to cool. Peel the pears and persimmons and chop them into chunks. Combine all salad ingredients. To make the dressing, mix all ingredients until well blended.
