|The combination of lentils + fruit really worked in this Fruity Lentil Salad with Persimmon, Apple, and Avocado!|
I'm a huge fan of lentil salads (like this Vegetarian Lentil Taco Salad or this Lentil and Barley Greek-Style Salad), but I have to admit combining lentils, fruit, and avocados into this Fruity Lentil Salad with Persimmon, Apple, and Avocado was thinking outside the box, even for a lentil-lover like myself. But please believe me when I say that this slighty-sweet salad with lentils and fruit was just delicious!
I learned to really like persimmons when a blogging friend sent me some Fuyu Persimmons in the mail a few years ago. Since then I've bought a few persimmons every fall when they start showing up in the stores in Utah. It's persimmon season right now and you need a few persimmons in your life, don't you? (And if the idea of persimmons + lentils is just too far outside the box, check after the recipe for more persimmon salad ideas!)
