what you'll need
  

  • 20 cherries pitted and halved or quartered
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 lime lime juice
  • 3 cups baby arugula
  • 1/2 English cucumber cubed and skin-on
  • 4 oz feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch kosher salt
  • 2 chicken breasts grilled, sliced

let's do it
 

  • Place prepared cherries in a small mixing bowl. Add sugar and lime juice then stir to coat. Set aside to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Remove cherries from bowl, reserving the liquid for dressing. Add cherries, arugula, cucumber, feta and almonds to a large salad bowl toss lightly then set aside.
  • Add olive oil and salt to reserved dressing. Whisk until dressing comes together to form an emulsion. Pour dressing over salad and toss until combined.
  • Place sliced grilled chicken (warm or cold) on top and serve immediately. This salad works great served on a platter with the chicken as the hero adorning the top. However, serving it in a salad bowl works great too.
