Arugula Salad with Persimmons, Shaved Manchego & Bistro Dressing

This salad couldn't be simpler. The dressing is one you will see me offer over and over because it's so good. It is a recipe I hope becomes yours. Maybe it already is! I certainly didn't make it up. Who knows who did!? Just one day I noticed whenever I had a salad that I could not stop eating, it had shallots in it.

There are a few recipes so far where I've suggested hazelnut oil. If you have some already, why not sub some of the olive oil for it here. You don't need it but if you have it it would be nice here.

If you can't find Fuyu persimmons, winter citrus or even starfruit works.


2 small handfuls of arugula

1/4 Fuyu persimmon per person

Manchego cheese

1 shallot, diced small
