This is just a nice twist on a celery salad. I would love to say this is my recipe, but I can't. This is from a small Bed and Breakfast in North Carolina. The Owner / Chef was nice enough to share her recipe with me, and had many other recipes that looked wonderful, but this is the only one I asked for. Unfortunately, the Bed and Breakfast is no longer there and the owner can't be contacted. She was a fantastic cook. The cherries with the combination of the pecans and the creamy dressing, just make it a perfect combination. I love to serve this with a honey roasted chicken, just something light and simple. Enjoy it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pecans -- In a small dry saute pan, add the pecans and bring to medium heat and toast for just a couple of minutes. Don't let them burn, they literally take, 1-2 minutes. Remove and set to the side.
  2. Salad -- Just add all the ingredients in a medium size bowl and toss well to combine. Garnish with the chopped celery leaves.
  3. Serve -- Just ENJOY! Try a simple roasted chicken and some hearty whole grain bread to along with this simple salad.
