Spiced Persimmon Salsa
Randy Mayor

Spiced Persimmon Salsa

Rather than using sad, underripe, out-of-season summer fruits for holiday dishes, why not try crisp, sweet, tart Fuyu persimmons? They're in season October to February, and pair excellently with many different flavors. This slightly spicy salsa, which also uses ginger and lime, makes a great partner to soft, mild cheeses like brie, chévre, or ricotta. Make a simple canapé with buttery crackers or toast points, a spread of cheese, and a dollop of salsa.
