Aunt Dee Dee's Persimmon Salad   Printer Version
Vegetarian — 0 Carb Choices
Updated 2014 — © 1997-2014

Aunt Dee Dee (Margaret Sundell), was born in Leadville, Colorado, at about the time Baby Doe Tabor was guarding the Matchless Mine. One of the best "treats" they had for meals back then, was a salad. At 10,000 feet, with only dirt and gravel roads to get to Leadville, salads were a luxury. This was Dee Dee's favorite. If you like persimmons, it might become your favorite too.
