    How can you go wrong with a recipe that has only one direction? When cherries go on sale, this is the perfect recipe to use them up! We tried organic broccoli sprouts as our microgreens. Definitely a nice change from regular lettuce salad!

    This recipe just screams summer! We love cherries and they were perfect in this light, fresh salad. The lemon zest was great but next time I think we will try orange zest for a slightly different twist! Don't skip the cheese - the salty really complements the sweet fruit!
