Persimmon & Endive Salad w/ Honey Vinegar and Avocado Oil Vinaigrette

This salad not only dances over your tongue with buttery goodness, but the contrast with the honey and avocado vinaigrette will have you start looking for more persimmon dishes to add it to!

Ripe persimmons are the perfect addition to a salad. The sweetness pairs well with the spice of the peppery arugula beautifully! Since ripe persimmons are so sweet, they often taste like honey. Making the honey vinegar and avocado oil vinaigrette an absolute must. 

In each bite, you get crisp endive, peppery arugula, sweet persimmon and salty feta cheese - what’s not to love about all those flavors! We have a feeling this is going to be your next go-to salad if you’re on a salad kick.
