For the dressing:
1 small shallot, minced
¼ cup good quality olive oil
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Salt and pepper, to taste
For the za’atar:
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons toasted white sesame seeds
2 tablespoons sumac
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
For the salad:

3 radishes, thinly sliced
2 mandarins, peeled and separated
1 large or 2 small Nature’s Partner Fuyu persimmons

In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients for the salad dressing. Dressing may be stored for up to one week in the refrigerator in an air-tight container. In a separate small bowl, mix together all za’atar ingredients and set aside.
