Kris, Thanks For this beautiful and delicious salad.We had this with,(believe it or not) Spaghetti and meatballs, and Italian Bread with olive oil and asiago cheese. I loved the crunch,and it really went well with our meal.Thanks again, Darlene Summers
I made a similar recipe for Xmas eve dinner this past Xmas and after reading the ingredients on this one I will switch to using it. I too am from Michigan and have had this type of salad on many occasions. Great recipe Kris, can't wait to make it!
I thought this was outstanding! I didn't have the dried cherries or optional meat, but used pecans instead of walnuts. I packed the leftovers in my lunch the next day and plan on making this strictly for my lunch in the future (DH is not a fan of vinaigrette dressings nor salads with nuts and fruit - but I AM!). Great salad! Thanks for sharing.
perfect :) if you can't find dried cherries, we use the cherry flavored "crasins" (cranberry raisins) they are a great substitute!
I live in Traverse City and put dried cherries in alot of my salads. There are many versions of this salad in all the restaurants up here..
