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 will 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.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large pomelo
  • 1 small or 1/2 large pomegranate
  • 1 large, firm, ripe fuyu persimmon
  • 1 large, firm, ripe pear
  • 1 handful fresh mint leaves
  • About 1 tsp ground cinnamon (to taste)

Instructions:

  1. Peel pomelo, remove flesh from skin, and break into bite-sized pieces
  2. Cut pomegranate in half, and gently remove seeds, being careful not to smash them, and not to stain your clothes…
  3. Cut persimmon into smallish bite-sized pieces
  4. Cut pear into smallish bite-sized pieces
  5. Remove mint leaves from stems and chop
  6. Toss all ingredients gently in a bowl, dust with cinnamon, mix again gently, enjoy!
