Sour cherry salad for lunch

Happy Friday, friends. Tonight we won’t be cooking because we’ll be celebrating Dave’s success at work! But first, we get to have lunch: I love fruit and nut salads. I also love that you don’t have to cook anything for them. Remember these guys? They are just waiting to be part of my favorite kind […]
