And in these recipes, persimmons bring a playful twist to your salad bowl. They balance sweet and savory flavors that feel like they came from a fancy restaurant. 

If you need some greens for your next party, every one of these recipes will be a hit. 

As soon as persimmons are in season, grab a bunch and whip up these fantastic persimmon salads. 

1. Arugula and Persimmon Salad

Let me introduce you to this arugula and persimmon salad. Making an entire salad with peppery, slightly bitter arugula is pretty brave. But once you add delicately sweet persimmons, it balances the bitterness of arugula for a flavor out of this world. 

For more fall vibes, it also includes nutty pecans, delicate halloumi cheese, earthy beets, and creamy avocado

2. Persimmon Salad With Honey Walnut Dressing

If Autumn had a salad mascot, it would be this persimmon salad with honey walnut dressing. I mean, it even looks like a seasonal fall sweater. 

The bright orange of tender persimmons stands out against deep leafy greens, nuts, and flecks of Parmesan cheese. 

And that honey walnut dressing is so savory and sweet, it takes it to a new level. 

3. Salad With Persimmons & Delicata Squash

This isn’t your average salad. It expertly walks the line between fiercely sweet and savory. Bitter greens are the perfect backdrop for sweet persimmons and delicata squash. 

Delicata squash is a must for this recipe because it’s a little sweeter than your average butternut squash. 

And with a vinaigrette infused with maple syrup, mustard, garlic, and basil, the flavors leap off the plate. 

4. Pear Persimmon Salad with Maple Apple Cider Vinaigrette 

Want to be the MVP of Thanksgiving? Just bring this pear persimmon salad. 

It’s almost too pretty to eat. But with one bite, you’ll lose all your appreciation for artful design.

It pairs sweet, slightly tropical persimmons with autumn’s more underappreciated fruit: pears. Pears and persimmons bring a balanced sweetness and tender texture against dark, leafy greens. 

An apple cider vinaigrette binds all those sweet and bitter flavors together in rich harmony. 

5. Winter Grapefruit and Persimmon Salad With Fennel

This grapefruit and persimmon salad isn’t green. It’s a delicately balanced salad with a base of licorice-like fennel rather than bitter greens. 

And the fennel shines against a backdrop of sweet persimmon and citrusy grapefruit. It’s a simple salad, but the combination of flavors will fire you up to build a snowman!

6. Persimmon and Blue Cheese Salad With Grainy Mustard Vinaigrette

Bleu cheese, persimmon, and bitter greens are an unlikely combo. In this salad recipe, the flavors are spectacular! It’s a genuinely unique salad you’ll add to your dinner rotation from here on out. 

The blue cheese is delightfully tangy and bitter but calmed by sweet persimmons and mustard greens. And with mustard and toasted walnut dressing, it’s hard to resist. 

7. Persimmon and Pomegranate Salad With Maple Vinaigrette and Candied Walnuts 

There’s a lot going on inside this persimmon and pomegranate salad. And every ingredient plays so well with one another. 

Persimmons and pomegranate seeds create a sweet, nutty texture. It’s perfect with deep greens and candied walnuts. 

This salad is so rich and hearty that it makes a wonderful main course!

8. Persimmon Salad With Sherry Vinaigrette

This persimmon salad with sherry vinaigrette is a great choice for any party.

The best part? It comes together in a snap. It combines simple yet boldly flavorful ingredients like persimmons, kale, pomegranate, and pumpkin seeds

A sherry wine vinaigrette harmonizes sweet and bitter fruits and veggies. You’ll love it!

9. Persimmon Prosciutto Burrata Salad

If September had a color, it would be the colors in this persimmon prosciutto burrata salad. 

While the recipe title sounds fancy, it’s easier than you think (but still tastes fancy). It pairs sweet persimmons with smoky, salty prosciutto. Think of it as a sweet, fall-inspired antipasto salad. 

And when you add that burrata cheese on top, it adds such silky smooth milky flavors. Delicious!

10. Kale Persimmon Salad

Kale persimmon salad has such a rich depth of flavor with only a handful of ingredients. Bitter kale leaves can overpower a salad, but the sweet persimmons and pomegranate seeds soothe the bitterness. 

And the sweet and acidic mustard vinaigrette takes this simple salad to new heights. 

11. Candied Pecan Persimmon Gorgonzola Salad

When you say the words ‘candied pecan,’ count me in! This salad doesn’t shy away from bold flavors. 

Gorgonzola is a cheese that’s not for the faint of heart. But the sweetness of candied pecans and persimmons calms its intense flavor.

Combine it with deep leafy greens and a very simple vinaigrette. This salad is so flavorful, a little vinaigrette goes a long way. 

12. Cranberry Roasted Butternut Persimmon Salad 

This cranberry roasted butternut persimmon salad has it all. Cranberries add a bright tartness against roasted butternut squash, pecans, and persimmons. 

And did I mention fried goat cheese? This salad has so many bold flavors you don’t need dressing. 

13. Persimmon Salad With Orange Dressing

When you think salads, you think summer. But this persimmon salad with orange dressing delivers serious winter vibes. 

It combines classic winter veggies including deep greens, carrots, radicchio, goat cheese, and sweet persimmons.  And the almonds add a nice nutty crunch. 

Topped with a tangy orange dressing, you’ll never look at basic summer salads the same way. 

14. Spinach and Persimmon Salad

This spinach and persimmon salad is a must-try around the holidays. It uses simple ingredients and comes together in just 15 minutes. 

It features tender spinach leaves with a kick of sweetness from strawberries and persimmons. Add feta (or goat cheese), crunchy pistachios and pomegranate seeds, and toss in a simple orange dressing. 

Trust me, your family will go nuts over this winter salad!
