I was looking for a bright, tasty, unusual salad for fall, so when I saw organic pomegranates and persimmons in the produce department, I decided to just do a little experimenting. The mint adds a little Asian twist–fantastic! This is the result — It’s healthy and delicious–my family loved it!  I think yours will too.
