  • ½ cup (114g) pomegranate seeds
  • 6 prunes, pitted and chopped into small chunks

Servings: 4

  1. Slice each bulb once from top to bottom. Then, slice the entire half as thinly as possible, horizontally, with a sharp knife or mandoline.
  2. Mix together the lemon zest, juice, and olive oil in a large bowl. Add the fennel and prunes to the dressing and let rest during the rest of the prep.

  4. Toss the green and the sliced fruit (persimmon and pears) lightly, into the large bowl with the dressed fennel and prunes.
  5. Top with the fronds, walnuts, and pomegranate seeds. Salt and pepper to taste.
