You love your Tomato Mozzarella Salad in the summer time and you are looking for a real alternative to that in the winter month?! This is the perfect recipe for you! Today I created a special version of Caprese for you, a Persimmon Caprese!

A Persimmon? What is it?

Persimmon, same like the tomato is not commonly considered to be a berry, but guess what!? both are! Persimmons have this beautifully delicate flavor that almost has a cantaloupe quality to it, both in color and sweetness. In my opinion you can also get hints of honey or squash. And this works perfectly with the sharpness of the garlic and basil in the pesto and of course the chili. But if you don’t like spicy food, of course you don’t need to use the chili. I like it nowadays in my foods, as the chili is commonly known to burn more fat, is good for weight loss and fights infections. Find more informations about the benefits of chili here.

What are the benefits of my Persimmon Caprese?

Persimmons are a good source of vitamins A and C as well as manganese, which helps the blood to clot. They contain antioxidants, which help reduce the risk of cancer and stroke.

Can I replace the Persimmon with another fruit or vegetable, as I got allergic reactions to it?

Yes, this can happen, you definitely should exchange the Persimmon with a Tamarillo, also known as tree tomato. Also a cantaloup melon could be a good option for you!

I am vegan and don’t eat Mozzarella cheese, what can I do!?

Replace the Mozzarella cheese with smoked tofu. I found the combination interesting.

For more flavor in the basil pesto, you can heat the olive oil slightly and soak the stems of the basil over night in the olive oil. Use this olive oil to make the pesto.
