Substitute fresh Rainiers in recipes that call for dried cherries. Spinach salad gets a whole new life that way.

Simple and very tasty recipe. I only used 1 Tbsp bacon grease in the dressing and that was enough. I also omitted the salt because our bacon was already very salty. The cherries were great!
