Persimmon,Pomegranate,Apple and Chayote Salad



I was so fortunate to have fresh juicy poms,persimmons,lemons,apples and chayotes..

I searched the net and found a salad that contained a few of these ingredients..

And ended up with a fruit salad I truly enjoyed..



For 3..I chopped up..

3 persimmons
1 chayote
1 apple
Extracted the seeds and juice from one pom..
added lemon juice and honey to taste.. a touch of salt ..
and topped everything w/ baked persimmon frills.

It tasted fresh as a daisy:)

  1. Oh oui, c'était si beau qu'il fallait se l'approprier ce monde que Dieu a créé... peut-être aussi pour manger une salade de fruits comme celle-là.

  18. What a beautiful sounding salad with all those lovely colors. I have all the items in my kitchen. A friend just gave me a bowl of persimmons and I have never tried the fruit before. I'm going to give it a try this afternoon or this evening. Just what I needed - thank you.

  20. I'm ashamed to admit I've never tasted either a persimmon or a chayote. Your salad certainly makes me want to correct that deficiency in my education. :D
    Soooo pretty!

    I always learn something new here. Thanks!

    fondly,

  21. Oh my goodness - that first photo is an eyepopper! Beautiful composition and color. And I confess I don't even know what a chayote IS, much less ever tasted one, but I'll take your word that it was a wonderful fresh fruit salade.
