Cherry Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

I'm counting my blessings around here as the temperature is finally worthy enough to say that it's summer. Our hydrengas are mid-bloom, our rhubarb is nearly ready for a second pick and landscape projects abound at our one acre park.

 Last year we were all about bark chips. This year the buzz word is rock!  7 yards of rock arrived and we are turning weed patches into rock beds.   Maybe next year my husbands wish will come true and we'll concrete the rest! Ha!

Yards and Yards of Rock

Back yard beauty! 

In the meantime, seasonal cherries are on sale at stores and sold at road side stands. We had some cherries that started to soften and I didn't want to loose them.  Here's how to make a light & flavorful cherry vinaigrette to liven up your green salad.

  • 2 cups of pitted cherries
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinagrette
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Pit the cherries using a cherry pitter.

Place pitted cherries in a juicer. Remove then
add balsamic vinegrette, olive oil, salt and pepper.  Mix well and pour into salad dressing containers. I purchased the containers below at the Cash and Carry store.
