There are many things in life that give me great joy... binge watching TV, chocolate, sparkling wine (when not pregnant), slutty brownies etc. But there is one thing that I'm currently obsessing over... and lucky for you it's now on the blog. This Fall Farmers Market Salad is everything. That's just about the only way to put it. It's all you could possibly need for a Thanksgiving salad and I made it for you!

Every Wednesday I head down to my local farmers market. It's pretty much my favorite way to start the day and it's always fun grabbing a bunch of random things and turning it all into something delicious.

If I end up making a salad with my farmers market goodies, I always throw a bit of goat cheese on top! It's really the only sensible thing to do and it gives it that slight tang! Feta cheese would be great too.  Bonus points for this salad because while you can absolutely serve it on the side for Thanksgiving - it also doubles as the most perfectly satisfying lunch or main course dinner during persimmon season!

    This salad was a hit for Thanksgiving!! Added a few ingredients from your Persimmon Salad recipe to this dressing (honey, apple cider vinegar and small shallot). Yum!! So colorful, too. Thank you!

  3. Hi! This looks delicious. Is there another fruit or something you would suggest in place of persimmon? I want to make for Thanksgiving but one of our guests cannot have persimmons.
    Thank you!

    I made this and it was awesome. I used an 11 oz container of mixed greens. It was, by far, one of the best salads I have ever had.
