Perfect 4P Fruit Salad with Pomelo, Persimmon, Pomegranate, and Pear


I don’t really like fruit. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, and I have to force myself to eat them sometimes. This fruit salad, however, I actually find myself craving as soon as winter rolls around. I am lucky enough to live in a part of the world where these ingredients are bountiful. I hope you’ll be able to get your hands on them as well…

The best persimmons for this salad are the firm ones with the squarish shape, which I believe are sold as fugu persimmons in the US. There is some good persimmon information available here.
