  • Chef notes

    They say you eat with your eyes first — well, if that's the case with this salad, you will be stuffed before you even take one bite. It tastes just as good as it looks.

    Technique tip: Always use a cherry pitter to remove the pits from the cherries; it is invaluable for the recipe.

    Swap option: Any ripe summer fruit will work beautifully in this salad.
