Though inspired by golden cherries from the farmers’ market, this pretty salad can be made with
any sort of fresh or frozen cherry. Marcona almonds hail from Spain; their toasty, slightly sweet
and salty flavor is a great match for the fruit. Toasted whole almonds and a few extra pinches of
sea salt can be substituted.

Cut the cherries in half lengthwise and place in a large serving bowl. Add the arugula, cheese and almonds. Drizzle with the oil and vinegar, crush a few generous pinches of salt over the top and season generously with pepper. Toss to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary.
