There’s so many things you can do with zucchini. We’ve already had plenty to say about the wondrous versatility of this modest little squash. So let’s focus instead on this amazing persimmon dressing!
If you’ve never tasted a well-ripened persimmon, then you simply don’t know what you’re missing. If tasted before they have had a chance to get really, really ripe — we’re talking almost fermented, even — persimmon is aggressively astringent and unpleasant. But as the fruit matures and the tannin levels are reduced, it becomes one of the sweetest and most incredible tasting fruits you’ll find anywhere. But it does take patience! You have to let the persimmon ripen until it becomes so soft it is squishy. Which makes it ideal for dressings!
As always, ginger provides a lovely spicy foil for the sweetness of the persimmon dressing. Give it a try!
