For the dressing

For the salad

  • about 2 Fuyu persimmons, peeled and thinly sliced
  • about 6 ounces mixed baby greens, washed and dried
  • ¼ cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup pistachios
  • honey
  • cayenne pepper


For the dressing

  • Mix the ingredients together. Add all of the ingredients to a small jar, screw the lid on tightly and shake. Or, add everything except the oil to a small bowl and then whisk in the oil gradually. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Here's how.) Set aside. You will likely have more dressing than you will need. Save it for your next salad.

For the salad

  • Combine all of the ingredients. In a large mixing or serving bowl, combine the greens with the red onion, blue cheese, cranberries and sliced persimmons. Place the pistachios on a plate, drizzle them with honey and sprinkle them with a touch of cayenne pepper. Add them to the salad and mix.
  • Dress the salad. Add the desired amount of dressing, toss and serve.
