"That last cherry soothes a roughness of my palate."
-Robert Browning, Poet
This is a simple salad dressing that is really versatile. It's cool and refreshing on a hot summer day but perfect for an elegant dinner party. Make sure to look for unsweetened cherries. Not only are there added calories in sweetened fruit, it also takes away the bright tart flavor. Just a touch of maple syrup is enough.
