Composed Frisée Autumn Salad

The perfect salad once the air gets a chill. Our garden is abundant with the ingredients, so a brisk walk outside is all it takes to gather the ingredients for dinner.

Serves 6


  • 1 head Frisée lettuce
  • 3 fresh ripe Fuyu persimmons
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 18 pecans
  • 1-2 Tablespoons GC Napa Valley Meat Rub
  • 1 Tablespoon Myer lemon zest
  • Pinch GC Napa Valley Lavender Sea Salt
  • Pinch GC Napa Valley Lavender Tellicherry Pepper
  • ¼ cup cooking grade extra virgin olive oil or grape seed oil
  • Citrus Salad Dressing


  1. Wash lettuce and spin dry.
  2. Put a handful on each salad dish.
  3. Fuyu persimmons: slice into 18 ½” thick wedges
  4. GC Napa Valley Meat Rub seasoned pan roasted pecans: Dust pecans with Meat Rub and sauté until slightly golden brown- be careful- they burn easily. Remove from pan and set aside
  5. Pomegranate seeds: buy seeded or take, slice open a pomegranate and remove seeds. Be careful-they stain clothes, so go slow.
