CLEMENTINE, PERSIMMON & POMEGRANATE SALAD

'A FRESH FRUIT SALAD FOR THE NEW YEAR'

(Serve 4)

 Salad:

  • 2 pomegranates
  • 5-6 clementines
  • 4 persimmons
  • 3-4 tbsp yellow raisins
  • 4-5 tbsp almonds laminates
  • Dried flowers (calendula, rose...)

 Dressing:

  • 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp agave or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1/2 tsp clave powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/2 ginger powder

This is an easy recipe to make with a delicious taste filled with Christmas notes. The touch of the flowers that you choose will give the salad some extra aroma. This fruit salad can be served as dessert or starter. It can be presented in many different ways, in a glass topped with some cream or yogurt, in jars with melted or grated chocolate, in a big bowl with a flower decoration around...  anyway enjoy the holidays!

Peel and cut the persimmons and the clementines. Deseed the pomegranates. Place the fruit in a big bowl. Add the almonds (you can roast them previously or keep them raw) and the raisins. Sprinkle the salad with some dried flower petals (in this case i use calendula)

To make the dressing, squeeze the orange in a small jar. Add the syrup and all the spices, mix with a spoon. Drizzle the salad with the dressing and combine. 

I love to add to the salad some spoons of plant yogurt or eat it with a ball of ice cream (cashew-coconut matches it perfect). Sprinkle some extra flowers, grated chocolate, pomegranate juice and make it look fantastic!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!
