Arrange the amount of greens you would like on a plate and sprinkle with the sliced onions. Drizzle with the dressing and place the sliced persimmons and pomegranate seeds on the side.

*There are two kinds of persimmons that you find in stores. Hachiya persimmons are acorn shaped and you wait until they are very soft, cut them in half and scoop out the insides and puree them for baking. Fuyu persimmons are shaped like tomatoes and are eaten staring when you can slightly press into them but the are still basically firm.

To remove seeds from a pomegranate, cut a cap on the top of the pomegranate and peel it off. Where you see a thicker white membrane, make slices from the top to the center on the bottom. Then split the pomegranate apart with your hands. Remove the thin membranes.
