Cherry Salad

It's cherry time. Sweet dark Bing cherries. Bright and sweet Rainier cherries. They're all good! And, they're all available now. Everywhere. The store, the farmer's market, and on the street corner down the street! I like cherries plain, in sweet treats, and mixed in a salad. You'll note this salad follows my parameters of greens plus fruit plus nuts plus cheese equals yumm.


2 cups butter lettuce leaves
1/2 cup pitted cherry halves
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
2 Tbs Italian salad dressing


Arrange lettuce leaves on two salad plates. Sprinkle cherries, almonds and blue cheese crumbles on salad. Use whichever type of cherry you have on hand, even a mixture. Add 1 tablespoon of dressing to each salad.

Serves 2

Stealthy Cooking Tip: Arranging the salad leaves makes this a beautiful salad. It doesn't take very long, but the results are worth it. You'll be amazed at how delightful a beautiful arrangement can taste!
