Spinach and Arugula Salad with Persimmons, Orange & Pomegranate

Spinach and arugula salad with persimmons, orange & pomegranate is a delicious salad I had at a holiday party with a group of wonderful gals recently. One of our friends Deb brought this colorful salad that was so beautiful that I almost felt bad taking some of the salad and disrupting the lovely presentation.

This salad is as delicious as it is beautiful. Wonderful greens mixed with fruits in season such as Fuyu persimmons, pomegranate, and oranges; all garnished with red onions, walnuts and feta cheese, and then tossed in orange Dijon vinaigrette. My mouth waters just writing all this 😋.  What an awesome salad this is!  I got the recipe from Deb that same day and made it for another holiday party and as expected the salad was a huge hit there as well!
