Northwest Cherry Salsa Recipe

Publisher Photo
Among the 50 fruit trees on our place are five cherry trees—and I like to use every bit of fruit that doesn't get eaten right off of them! We enjoy salsa on a variety of dishes, especially leftovers (it really sparks them up) and eggs. I prefer this salsa most with turkey. We have three boys—8,6 and 4—and a daughter who's 2. They keep me busy, since they're hungry all day! In the kitchen, I'm always trying new things. It's rare for me to follow a recipe exactly. So, when something turns out good, my husband will a smile and say, "Do you think you'll be able to make it the same way next time?"
