Cherry Salad



 
 
{Cherry Vinaigrette dressing}
{Salad bowl: spinach, cucumber,
baby carrots, & green apple} 
Taking full advantage of the seasonal abundance of cherries,  I've been experimenting with them in various dishes.  My favorite is the cherry vinaigrette salad dressing.  I didn't follow any specific recipe;  I pretty much just went by a-spoonful-of-this-and-a-spoonful-of-that method.  
Here's what I did:
1) Add 1 teaspoonful of olive oil to a pan, followed by some freshly ground garlic
2) Add pitted cherries when the garlic starts to turn slightly brown
3) Then add balsamic vinaigrette & water (~ 2 tablespoons each)
4) Let it simmer on low heat ~ 10 min (Add a teaspoon of sugar if you like).
5) Salted to taste.

I will make this again today for our Father's day dinner.  I hope my dad will like it (He's really picky about foods).  :)
Happy Father's Day!
