Tomato Pistachio Mozzarella Salad

I really felt like having a nice lunch with myself so I made this beautiful light salad just in time for the kick off of summer.  I originally wanted to call it Half Assed Tomato Mozzarella Salad but my inner voice told me not too.  This is the same voice that tells me it’s OK to stalk the guy at the deli.  I really need to find new personalities.

Fresh Cherries, Vanilla Creme Fraiche, Walnut Pesto, Balsamic Ice Cream

I am a big fan of cherries and think they are best just the way they are.  I can grab a bag from a vendor on the corner, sit in the park and kill a day people watching.  One of my favorite things to do. Unfortunately, most desserts made with cherries are cooked to death or with a ton of sugar or booze.  It totally kills the cherry and I don’t understand why you would do it.  Now, cherry pie… that’s different.  Don’t argue with me.  Remember McDonald’s cherry pies??  Oh man!!
