With the cherry season in full swing, it is safe to say that cherries are the official fruit of 4th of July. They are such a versatile fruit, equally fabulous in both sweet and savory dishes, and exceptional in crisp summer salads. These Stemilt cherries live up to their world famous recognition plump, juicy and perfectly ripe, and their crisp granny smith apples make this salad a favorite in our home


Bulb of fennel 1
Fresh stemilt cherries 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Walnuts 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Granny smith apple 1/2
Red wine vinegar 1 Tablespoon

1. Pit your sweet cherries and prepare your fennel and apples by coring the center and thinly slicing them.


2. Add them to a large mixing bowl filled with fresh spring greens and walnuts while you prepare the dressing.

3. In a small mixing bowl, add the vinegar, honey, olive oil, salt, pepper, and lemon juice and whisk until fully blended – for an optional extra cherry accent, chop up a few cherries and add that to the dressing and give it another whisk before pouring it on to your salad mixture.


Toss and then serve immediately.
