Ingredients
For the Salad
  • 4-5 ounces baby spinach
  • 1-2 Fuyu persimmons, sliced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (about 1/2 a large pomegranate)
  • 1/3 cup toasted pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
For the Vinaigrette
  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Place the spinach, persimmons, pomegranate seeds, pecans and red onions in a large bowl.

  2. In a small jar, combine the orange juice, vinegar, maple syrup, lime juice, cinnamon, olive oil, and season with salt & pepper.  Seal tightly with a lid, then shake well until combined.

  3. Pour the dressing over the salad ingredients, then toss together gently.  Alternatively, you could arrange the salad ingredients on four individual plates and serve the dressing on the side. 

Recipe Notes

For a different but equally delicious flavor profile, try swapping cumin for the cinnamon.  It's just a pinch of either ingredient but it makes a big difference in taste.  Both are wonderful with the maple and citrus flavors of the vinaigrette.
