Roasted Persimmon & Brie Salad

RECIPE TYPE Salad
For some reason, sometime around September, I stop eating salads. I have it in my head that they are a summer thing. Why? I do not know. So I promised myself, that this year, I would enjoy salads throughout the year. Here is my first one–I’m a little late. But that is okay, this roasted persimmon salad is worth waiting for!

2

Place the persimmons on a baking sheet, and bake them in a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes, turning them over at half time.

NOTE: Commercially speaking, there are two types of persimmons: the hachiya and the fuyu. Hachiyas are heart-shaped and need to over ripen before eating. They taste kinda furry otherwise. This variety is perfect for baking with. Fuyus can be eaten just like an apple.

3

In a large mixing bowl, add one serving of mixed greens, 1/8 cup of pine nuts and olive oil. You want just enough oil to lightly coat the leaves. Add salt and pepper to taste, and toss the salad.

4

Remove the persimmons from the oven when done–they should be slightly browned but still firm–and let them cool slightly.

5

Plate the greens with 1 ounce of brie and top the salad with the roasted persimmons.
