A Homemade Life: Cherry salad
The cherries came to the market in time for me to make Molly Wizenberg's bread, cherry, arugula and goat cheese salad. You don't need a recipe, just those ingredients, plus some balsamic vinegar and olive oil. And try to mash some of the cherries so the juice becomes part of the dressing. I took her advice and threw it together my own way -- didn't remove crust from bread before toasting for croutons, didn't measure anything, forgot about the miniscule quantity of chopped garlic. A terrific dinner for a hot Sunday night. Also, cherries in a salad are just an excellent idea. I'm going to try to remember that.
