Persimmon Prosciutto Salad

Persimmons for me were the fruit of 2013, year when I got reunited with them and enjoyed in different dishes and combinations including a persimmon cocktail and a cranberry sauce with persimmon. Since I am searching for lighter options this year decided to create a  Persimmon Prosciutto Salad that plays with the sweet and salty flavors and different textures including feta cheese, pistachios, finger limes and fresh spring mix. The combination of flavors is indeed a winner, so get ready to enjoy this Persimmon Prosciutto Salad and enter what I defined as my tasty gourmet world and happy place. Let’s cook!
