Preparation Notes

It's so great to see fuyu persimmons back at the farmers' market again. This delicious and unique fruit is not only beautiful to look at, but good for you too. We purchased the sun-dried tomato hummus from a local restaurant vendor at the farmers' market as well, and picked up the falafel on our walk home. The tomato was plucked from our very sleepy-looking backyard garden, and the salad was left over from the day before.

Slice the pita bread.

Add a bit of hummus to the dip container.

Add two falafel patties.

Prepare the sugar snap pea and garbanzo salad by sauteeing the two ingredients in a small amount of olive oil and fresh garlic and then sprinkling with balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. (Allow to cool before packing.)

Peel and cut the persimmon and add it to the medium container.

Drop in one tomato for color, flavor, and an extra shot of nutrition.

  1. Very pretty! I'll have to look for persimmon, I haven't seen it here yet, and I'm still looking for concord grapes :)
