Persimon and pomegranate salad

  • Ingredients: Mix of lettuce, 1 persimmon, 1/2 pomegranate, 4 or 5 walnuts, oil, vinegar, salt and a little Parmesan.

  • preparation: The first thing is to wash and cut the lettuces, and arrange them on a wide and flat plate. On this bed we will place the persimón cut into slices once washed. The skin is tasty, so it is better not to remove it. It also has no bone, only the indentations where the seeds would go if it had matured, so the slices will be perfect. Then we peel the pomegranate carefully so that no piece of white skin remains, which is very bitter, and we also open the walnuts. We add them to the salad and dress with oil, salt and vinegar. If you have any with sweet notes like the cherry that I have used, all the better. Finally, before serving, we grate the Parmesan cheese into thin slices to give the salad the final touch.
