This stone fruit -- a relative of plums, peaches, and nectarines -- has a short harvest season, making a brief appearance in the produce aisle from June until August. Choose firm, richly colored cherries with green stems; avoid bruised, soft ones and those with brown stems.
Cherries take center stage in this refreshing, juicy fruit salad -- perfect for a picnic or barbecue.
Basic grilled chicken gets a fresh, fruity makeover with a topping of cherries, arugula, and a simple dressing of chopped shallot with oil and vinegar.
Cherries aren't only for jams and pies -- these juicy, ruby-red summer beauties are ripe for the picking in this refreshing salad.
