Healthy, Fast, and Easy Recipe For Fresh Cherry Salsa

Berry Tempting: Cherry Salsa

Get excited: we've been highlighting our favorite ways to prepare strawberries, and all Summer long, we'll be featuring uses for fruits such as blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.

Right this moment, we can't keep our eyes (and hands) off of the Bing and Rainier cherries that are popping up in farmers markets and produce sections. Technically, cherries are a stone fruit, but since they're blush-colored, bite-sized, and rhyme with "berries," we've taken the liberty of giving them an unofficial berry designation.

My favorite way to enjoy a cherry is ripe and off the stem. That's why I love a simple and uncooked recipe like this salsa, which lends the super-sweet fruit an unexpectedly savory twist. Serve it like a traditional salsa with tortilla chips, or use it as a topping for grilled chicken. For the no-cook recipe, read more.
