Prep time: 20 minutes

Makes 2 cups

The Bee's Kathy Morrison adapted this recipe from several found on the Internet. It's totally worth the time and mess of pitting and chopping.

Serve with tortilla chips or on the side with grilled chicken or turkey.


2 cups sweet cherries, stemmed, pitted and chopped

1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Zest from 1 lime

Juice from 1 lime

1 jalapeño pepper, seeds removed, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt and pepper to taste


Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl until well combined.

For best flavor, chill for an hour. Stir again before serving.
