Looking for other ways to enjoy our amazing Bing cherries? Here's a great recipe from Frog Hollow Farm's Stephanie J. Rosenbaum.

Baby Greens Salad with Goat Cheese & Cherries

You can also add a tablespoon of chopped fresh herbs to the dressing--try tarragon, basil, chervil, lovage, or parsley.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar or fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1 4-oz log of soft goat cheese (chevre), divided in 4 rounds
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
5 cups mixed baby greens or salad mix
1 cup halved, pitted cherries
1/2 cup chopped almonds, toasted

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, shallot, wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 F. Spread bread crumbs on a plate. Roll each round of goat cheese in crumbs until completely coated.

Place on a baking sheet. Bake until cheese is soft but not melted and crumbs are slightly crisp, about 8 minutes.

Toss salad greens and cherries with dressing, turning to coat evenly. Divide onto four plates. Top each plate with toasted almonds and a goat cheese round.
