We can’t believe that neither of us had tried Sharon fruit (persimmon) till earlier this year but having done so it is now a regular feature in our fruit bowl. Tonight we had a simple salad combining thinly sliced Sharon fruit and pear (used a mandolin slicer) topped with lambs lettuce dressed in olive oil, balsamic white vinegar, salt and pepper and finished with shavings of flavoured Gloucester cheese (onions and chives). Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

I’m trying this! I had no idea there was a fruit called Sharon 🙂 – Signed Sharon AKA Vinny
It was by chance that we tried the fruit – the person who recommended it said we could eat it with or without skin. Since we had semi ripe fruit we decided to try it in the salad – was a lot easier to slice in a mandolin.
Did you leave the skin on? I’m serving it on Friday 🙂
I peeled the skin off – the fruit we bought was firm not too ripe – if it is too ripe you will struggle slicing it in a mandolin – might have to go old school and slice by hand 🙂
