    elisechristiane's Note:

    A delicious salad from the food blog, Kiss My Spatula. The original recipe uses handfuls as measurements for the cherries and arugula, so I estimated about how much I used.

      Absolutely delightful lunch! I didn't mix all the ingredients together, just put the arugula on top, then some red quinoa over that and topped it with some walnuts and some dried tart cherries (instead of the other kind that the recipe called for). I drizzed dressing over the salad. For the dressing, I left out the honey and used a lemon infused olive oil. I tried a few bites with some shaved parm on top and it's better without the cheese!
