Few starters are simpler than this one!
Simply chill a plate.
Next, top it with some mixed greens. Any salad greens will work but an assortment is desirable for an interesting mingling of flavors.
Slice a Fuyu persimmon and decorate the greens with those brightly colored slim slices.
Dot the persimmon with crumbles (or globs as we call them in my kitchen) of chevre (goat cheese).
Lastly, sprinkle the plate with some homemade (or store bought, if you must) candied pecans.
The result is an inviting and colorful first course, filled with flavor and good nutrition. At the last minute, before serving, drizzle any type of citrus vinaigrette (or for New Years, use a high quality champagne vinaigrette) over the top and serve chilled!
