Harvest is a magical time of year where farmers get to see the fruits of their labor. While it may still be a little bit warm during the day, there is a nip in the evening air as we start to pull our cold weather clothes out of storage.
For many of us, some of our favorite fruits and veggies come into season in the fall, including persimmons. For persimmon lovers—or those that have never tried this delicious fruit—this salad showcases the sweetness of the fruit paired with crispy, salty halloumi cheese. This salad is hearty enough to be the main course and light enough to be the perfect starter for your meal.
Crispy halloumi tops arugula with sweet slices of persimmon and pomegranate seeds, all dressed in a delicious fall vinaigrette.
