Persimmon Apple Kale Salad with Tangy Tahini Dressing

Print

I eat salads every day and the key to that is making them creative and bursting with flavor. I love fall fruit, they make the best combination for salads!

Further Food Commentary:

Kale and pomegranates are known as nutrient powerhouses, but what about fugi apples and persimmons? Fuji apples are high in certain polyphenols that can help prevent spikes in blood sugar levels and support insulin sensitivity for healthy blood sugar levels. Keep the skins on to receive the unique phytonutrients! Persimmons, are high in fiber and contain the phytonutrients called lutein and zeaxanthine, (which promote eye health) and lycopene, (which may benefit heart health and reduce prostate cancer risk).
