I expected to enjoy this recipe as I really like all the separate ingredients but I'm afraid I didn't care much for the combination. I used 1T each of fresh sage, rosemary and thyme. The "leaves" and "sprigs" listed weren't very specific so I guessed. I found the sage totally overwhelming so I would recommend using far less than 1T. I would use less than the full recipe of dressing next time. It, too, overwhelmed the other flavors and made the salad a bit runny. The only change I actually made to the recipe is that I didn't rehydrate the dried cherries. I just couldn't make myself turn wonderfully chewy $10/pound dried cherries into juicy cherries.
