With local cherries in season I have been looking for interesting cherry recipes. In particular I was looking for some savory dishes in addition to sweet dishes. I came across this dish which looked very tasty. I of course made some changes. Instead of frying the chicken in ginger I made chicken teriyaki . I also dropped the honey as my teriyaki sauce is sweet enough. I used “boston” lettuce leaves and they held together while they were being eaten. This dish was very tasty! I imagine that it would also be good as a salad or as a wrap.

- Mix the “salad”: the chicken, cherries, carrot, celery, green onion and toasted almonds.
- Mix the dressing: the oil, rice vinegar, and teriyaki sauce in a small bowl.
