Kohlrabi and Persimmon Salad Recipe

After the delicious fruits of summer, the fall brings about another round of flavorful produce. This time of year, I anticipate the arrival of persimmons. These deceptive-looking fruits look a lot like tomatoes but have a delicate, sweet taste that blends perfectly with kohlrabi, a crisp vegetable with a sweet, peppery taste.

This recipe requires only a little preparation and is topped with an easy black sesame dressing for a beautiful finish.
