This salad from the “Taste of Home Farmer's Market Cookbook” is light, fresh and delicious. It is certainly easy, too. That said, I thought it was a very expensive recipe with what I consider “luxury” ingredients. I purchased my cherries and nuts from Costco at a good price, but if you have to buy all the ingredients it isn’t cheap. Be sure you buy your ingredients in season to make this the best and most economical.
