Persimmon, Beet, & Citrus Salad


What’s in this season? This salad! Use fall fruits and veggies to make this light and tasty salad from Beijos Events.




Preheat oven to 425°. Wrap the beets in parchment-lined foil (each color in a separate packet). Place on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until knife-tender, for about 45 minutes. When cool enough to handle, rub the beets with paper towels to remove skins. Cut into 1/4-inch-thick rounds.

Remove peels from citrus fruits with a sharp knife. Working over a small bowl to catch juices, carefully cut between membranes to remove segments. Squeeze juice from membranes into bowl.

Arrange beets, citrus segments, persimmons, endive, and watercress on a platter. In a bowl, whisk together three tablespoons reserved citrus juices and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in oil. Drizzle vinaigrette over salad just before serving.
