Northwest Cherry Salsa

 Northwest Cherry Salsa
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!
