The Balsamic vinegar from these Pickled Sweet Cherries takes on a sweet cherry flavor and makes a tasty vinaigrette to drizzle over grilled pork tenderloin or a fresh garden salad. The cherries are perfect for snacking, eating in a salad, piled on top of brined & grilled pork chops or over a toasted baguette slice topped with goat cheese (my favorite!).
Buy them ready made or try pickling them yourself with some fresh cherries.
