Cherry and Cheese Appetizer
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. George Washington loved cherries and also liked eating cheeses although their varieties were not as broad as our selection! A nice brie is good with this, but also cheddar slices, etc.
3-4 cloves garlic
Using food processor with steel chopping blade in place and the motor running, add the garlic to mince thoroughly. Add the cherries, honey, orange juice, balsamic, vanilla, salt, and pepper. Whirl to mix completely, getting the cherries nicely pureed. With motor running, slowly drizzle in the olive oil to make a great dressing. Arrange the greens, fresh cherries and cheese on a beautiful platter. Drizzle with the cherry dressing, and serve with plenty of crackers or bread slices.
