Fast and Easy Recipe For Chicken and Cherry Salad With Goat Cheese Dressing

Berry Tempting: Chicken & Cherry Salad With Chevre Dressing

I've held a long-standing preference for eating fresh cherries over cooking with them. In fact, my favorite way to consume them is simply off the stem. Our Berry Tempting series, however, has encouraged me to broaden my cherry horizons, and I've not only discovered that the stone fruits work well in a savory salsa, but also as the sweet touch to an entrée salad. If you love a contrast of flavor profiles and textures, but you're over the predictable spinach-bacon or strawberry-pecan pairings, you'll flip for this healthy and creative yet fast and easy meal. Fresh, in-season Bings are the crucial ingredient. They add a burst of sweet juice, along with a lingering pucker, to the crunchy combo. For the recipe, keep on reading.

  2. 1/2 cup crumbled fresh goat cheese (2 ounces)

  6. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, such as safflower

  9. 1/2 pound (2 cups) Bing cherries, pitted and halved
  10. 1/4 cup walnut pieces
