How to Make

1. Fill a medium-size pot about halfway full with water and bring this to a boil. Add a pinch of salt. Boil the string beans for about 1 minute, then remove them to a bowl of cold water. Drain off the water. Cut the string beans into about 4 cm lengths. Remove the stem and skin from the persimmon. Cut the persimmon into wedges and then cut the wedges into bite-size pieces.
2. Make the dressing. Add the tofu, miso, sesame paste, and salt to a mortar and then use a pestle to grind all of this into a smooth paste.
3. Arrange the persimmon and string beans on a serving plate and add the dressing.
