Makes 8 servings

Active Time: 20 minutes 

Total Time: 20 minutes 

Step 1

Trim and core the chicories, tear the leaves into bite-size pieces, and wash and pat dry. If you received bunched arugula, remove the stems from the arugula and wash and pat dry. Combine the chicories and arugula in a large bowl and set aside.

Step 2

Add 4 heaping tablespoons crème fraîche to the vinaigrette, and whisk or shake to combine. Cut the lemon in half.

Step 3

Remove the rind from the cheese. Using a paring knife or peeler, shave the cheese into shards.

Step 4

When ready to serve, core and slice the apples into thin wedges. Top and slice the persimmon into thin wedges, discarding any seeds.

Step 5

Drizzle the lettuce mix with the juice of one lemon and the creamy dressing, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Fold in the apples, persimmon, walnuts, and some of the cheese. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese, grind with more pepper, and serve.

Contains: milk, tree nuts. 

Note: Due to limited availabilities of certain varieties of chicory, you may receive frisée or escarole instead of Castelfranco and Treviso.
