This is a delightful salad, inspired by a great article in The Washington Post about Cherries and it paired with my wee jar of white balsamic vinegar I got in Italy perfectly. I got the vinegar in a cute little artisan food store next to Lake Garda, the owner was eager to educate me on the aged Modena vinegars and hoped I would buy but at 150 Euros not this time, although it is a divine and artisan product for sure.
He did mention that a great everyday vinegar for salads, was the white balsamic made from white grapes and what a lovely one it is. Funny I was on twitter the other day and and @EviesGran remarked that my salad of watermelon and cucumber I tweeted must be American as in the UK we don't add fruit. I have lived in the US now 8 years and love how American's use fruit in salad but I must say it is catching on across the pond as I recently saw a strawberry salad in The Guardian. Do you like to add fruit to your salad?
- handful of sweet cherries, pitted
- a handful of salad greens
- a dash of olive oil
- a dash of white balsamic
- simple assemble this simple and seasonal salad and enjoy :-)
Its so much fun to bring food items back from a trip as it allows us to relive wonderful memories through food.
