Persimmon and Goat Cheese Salad

Author Notes: This was a happy accident but is too lip smacking good not to plan to make in advance. When you make a juicy salad dressing, you can make juice and not oil the larger portion of the ratio and it comes out well with fewer calories. I'd have added some minced shallot if I'd had it on hand.nutcakes
