Author Notes: The great thing about this salad is that you can use any apple that you like or change up the fruit, nuts and cheese to make it a year-round or seasonal salad. There really is no perfect recipe. Add whatever you like. Justforlicks

I discovered Fuyu persimmons this season and like them so much that I'm always looking for new ways to use them. This looks wonderful. I've clipped it and added it to the queue! Thanks.
