It is dark sweet cherry season in our county. I like having a bowl of this tasty fruit in my refrigerator. To me, it is better than a jar of candy sitting on the counter.
Speaking of dark sweet cherries...

...I want to share this light treat with you. My husband and I both enjoy every meal or dessert we have of this recipe.
I take two containers of Weight Watcher's Black Cherry yogurt, one can of Oregon Fruit Products pitted dark sweet cherries(drained) and 3/4 cup of light Cool Whip. Mix together in a mixing bowl. I spoon this into glass bowls and sprinkle chopped walnuts or granola on top.


This light and refreshing recipe might just become one of your favorites, like it did for us
.

I use these canned pitted dark sweet cherries in fruit salad and ambrosia too.

Cherries are one of my favorite things about summer. I buy them every chance I get because I know it won't be long until they won't be around any more.
I have never tried canned cherries, but this dessert sure looks yummy and the dish you are serving it in is so pretty. Looks like a magazine photo.
