Adapted from recipe from Mountain Town Station Brewing Company and Steakhouse in Mount Pleasant, Michigan. Original recipe published in Bon Appetit, September 2002. Great salad for the holidays. Very easy but impressive. Dried cranberries can be substituted for the dried cherries. Also good with glazed or spiced pecans. Pears would also be good in place of apples. For a less creamy dressing, reduce or elimate sour cream and increase vinegar and oil.
