Fresh Cherry Salsa
1 1/2 lbs. cherries, pitted and roughly chopped
1/2 cup minced red onion
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 tsp. honey
1/4 tsp. salt
Mix all ingredients together well. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid. Refrigerate until serving time.
(at least a couple of hours for flavours to marinate)
Serve over grilled chicken or pork tenderloin or veal chops.
I received this recipe from a friend of mine who knows my skill set when it comes to cooking (below average) and she sends me recipes that she knows I am capable of carrying out. She always prefaces a recipe with the words “Dave can do it” referring to her spouse. I am no longer fooled by this phrase, which once comforted me, because now I know Dave’s skill set when it comes to cooking is a few steps higher than mine–but this cherry salsa sounds wonderful and so I am going to try it for two reasons:
1. my husband loves cherries
2. I love cherries
Now, tell me, does this not sound just too good not to make? What seasonal fruit, berry, or veggie do you love the most?
