I love dried cherries and pasta salad. This recipe combines them both. I think it is yummy.

Really good! I used sweetened, dried cranberries in an effort to imitate a pasta salad I had at a restaurant. It came very close! I might try adding a little red onion the next time I make it, but the recipe doesn't really need any tweaks.
