Still on the subject of salads...

28/10/2008

I'd like to share my take on Suzanne Goin's persimmon salad with you.


Ingredients: roast hazelnuts, salt, truffle oil, red onions, rice vinegar, white wine vinegar, pepper, persimmons, pomegranate seeds, more truffle oil, olive oil, rocket...

An ideal reflection of the season's colours, don't you think?
It's also a perfect way of dealing with the consequences of ten days' worth comfort binging.
And the nice thing about it is that it comes packed with vitamins, texture, crunchiness and all-over goodness.

Now if only I could have had some good dark bread on the side.

Repeat to self: my body is a temple, my body is a temple...

I went to the gym for the first time in 5 weeks today. HARD WORK.

I have also binged the last 2 weeks, also drunk a lot of booze, wine in the evenings etc.

And it shows!

Salad looks nice. Not sure I've had a persimmon before.

Milo: a persimmon or khaki as they're sometimes known. Other term: sharon fruit. Delicious!

As for the gym: I have no idea what that is? A concept, a must?

You've had pretty legit reasons for not going, what with poorly people in the house!

Aren't persimmon's bitter? We used to have a persimmon tree on our land when I was little and my mother said you couldn't eat them. The salad looks amazing, though and I might try it if I can get some persimmon reassurance :)

@Milo: I know, I know, but still...
@Vikki: no, they're sweet, when ripe and soft. I think you get Fuyu persimmons in the US, which are delicious.
