Packed with vitamins and nutrients, I love using cherries to naturally sweeten everything from smoothies to granola bars. In savory dishes, dried cherries are a great way to balance out the flavor profile of the entire dish.

Most recently, I created a summer salad made with bulgur wheat, Graceland Fruit organic dried cherries, creamy feta and spicy arugula. As the dried cherries sit in the vinaigrette, they slowly plump up and become even juicier over time.

If you’re not familiar with Graceland Fruit, they started as Cherry co-op; a small company in Michigan. Due to the popularity and demand for their “best of the best” organic dried fruit, the company has grown and now sells its dried fruit in grocery stores across the United States and also exports the dried fruit to nearly 60 countries around the world.
