  • 3 cups packed Greens (Spinach, Arugula etc. )
  • 2 Persimmons sliced
  • 1 cup Strawberries halved
  • A few Pecans or Walnuts
  • A handful Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Ricotta
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Bitter Orange Salad Dressing

For the dressing

  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Bitter Orange Marmalade See Note 1
  • 2 tablespoons Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • Salt to taste


  • To make the salad dressing, place everything in a food processor or blender and blend till combined. The dressing will emulsify and become thicker.
  • Toss everything in two to three tablespoons of the salad dressing.
  • Reserve the extra dressing in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to a week.


Note 1: If you don't have bitter orange marmalade, substitute with 3 tablespoons orange juice and a tablespoon of honey. Reduce the vinegar to 1 tablespoon in this case.
