Cherries beautifully encapsulate summer: Both are profoundly sweet and way too short-lived. Use your seasonal cherry haul to liven up salmon, enrich salads, create sensational desserts and more with these fresh recipes.
When yellow Rainiers are at their peak, this gorgeous dessert is a must (you can also make it with red cherries, of course). Just a hint of sharp cheddar adds a unique, unexpected element. "I like a slice topped with salted caramel or vanilla ice cream," says chef Frank Magaña.
This elegant yet easy entrée combines yellow and red cherries for a stunning presentation and taste.
Salty, creamy cheese nicely balances cherries' sweetness and arugula's bite. You can dehydrate your own cherries for this recipe by using roughly 2½ pounds fresh cherries, stemmed, pitted, and cut in half. This may take anywhere from 13 hours to 1½ days depending on your dehydrator.
Serve this on pancakes or even toast. It's also delicious over roasted pork, chicken, turkey, or darker meats like duck.
Why not put fruit in salads? In this tasty combo, goat cheese adds richness and texture.
"This is my go-to quick and easy tapa during cherry season," says chef Frank Magaña. Small servings on toothpicks are perfect for parties as a delectable sweet-savory nibble.
