Leek Salad with Persimmons and Almonds

If you're an onion lover and haven't made the switch to leeks yet, here's your chance! This dish is savory, salty, sweet, and addictive! 4 medium leeks, white and tender green parts only, halved lengthwise 1 1/2 cups chicken stock or low-sodium broth 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 bay leaf 1 thyme sprig plus 1 teaspoon chopped thyme leaves Kosher salt 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 tablespoon cider vinegar 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1/2 cup crumbled Greek feta cheese 2 ripe Fuyu persimmons, peeled and cut into thin wedges 2 cups baby arugula 2 tablespoons crushed marcona almonds Set the leeks cut side up in a large skillet. Add the stock, butter, bay leaf, thyme sprig and a pinch of salt. Cover tightly and simmer over low heat until tender, about 30 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the leeks to a platter and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid. Let cool completely. In a medium bowl, whisk the mustard with the chopped thyme, lemon juice and vinegar. Gradually whisk in the olive oil and season with salt. Scatter the feta over the leeks and drizzle lightly with some of the dressing. Add the persimmons and arugula to the remaining dressing in the bowl, season lightly with salt and toss. Mound the salad over the leeks, garnish with the almonds and serve.

This is definitely a grown up salad. Sounds great!
I am willing to try any salad with feta cheese :)
I love leeks, but I've never had persimmons and leeks before. I want to try this out!

I was in a baking mood and decided to try to make these! They came out good for my first time 😁😁 I'll post my recipes below if you'd like to try and make them. If you'd like the recipe, message me 😘 My bun recipe: -200g milk (Lukewarm) -5g active dry yeast -30g sugar --240g bread flour -60g all purpose flour -30g butter (room temp) -Egg wash Step 1: put lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Whisk and set aside for 5min Step 2: in a separate bowl, combine bread flour and all purpose flour. Then add milk mixture. Add a pinch of salt and knead dough Step 3: after dough can take ball form, knead in the room temp butter. Knead until butter is fully incorporated. After incorporated, put in a lightly greased bowl cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 30-40 min. Step 4: after 30-40 mins, take dough out. It should have doubled in size. Put flour on your finger and poke the middle of the dough. If it first bounce back, declare the air from dough and cut in 8 equal pieces. Form in to balls and set aside on a baking sheet for 10-15 mins. Make sure to cover with a lightly dampened cloth. Step 5: cut two areas on the doughball across from each other in a diagonal direction. Egg was the parts you cut in to. Sprinkle with sugar cover them again with a lightly dampened cloth and let them rest for 30 mins - an hour. They will double in size again Step 6: bake in an oven preheated to 400° for 10-12 mins and you're done! Chocolate pudding filling: -2 egg yolks -2 1/2 tbsp sugar -1 tbsp all purpose flour -1 1/2 tbsp corn starch -1 tbsp coco powder -200ml milk (hot) -2 tbsp butter -30g chocolate. I used four squares of semi sweet chocolate Step 1: whisk egg yolks and sugar together. In separate bowl, combine flour, corn starch and coco powder. Add mixture to yolk mixture and whisk together. Step 2: slowly add hot milk to the chocolate yolk mixture. When fully combined. Put yolk mixture through a strainer into a pot. Out put on burner and set to medium heat. Continuously whisk until mixture thickens to pudding consistency. Step 3: take off heat immediately and add butter and chocolate. Continue mixing until chocolate and butter mix in. Step 4: place plastic wrap directly on pudding and put in fridge to cool. After it cools, mix it again and add to piping bag.
