Persimmons contain at least 20% of the daily value of vitamin C. These thin skinned fruits are an easy choice for salads and out-of-hand eating.
Slice 2 persimmons and 1 medium red pear into wedges. Toss 4 cups baby spinach with 1/2 cup crumbled feta; 4 tablespoons finely chopped toasted pecans; and fruit. Drizzle with 2 tablespoon of olive oil and 2 to 3 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar.
