Draped in a light vinaigrette and sprinkled with almonds, this pretty salad is a variation of a recipe that's been passed around at school and church functions and even birthday parties. Everyone wants the recipe. -Toni Borden, Wellington, Florida

Love this salad! In the summer I make it with sliced strawberries.. it's addicting! It's my family's favorite salad! Have to be really patient when doing the nuts.. but well worth taking the time!

Just not "feelin it" on this recipe. For being contest winning, I expected more. Kind of bland.

This salad was simple, yet delicious! I used apple-cider vinegar to play off the cherries, but everything else was to the dot. Yummy!
