This looks and sounds like it would be excellent! I seems to have lots of my favorite things in it. I'm sure your mom would have loved it knowing the old machine still does it's thing.


Ours is ancient and noisy too, but I just chucked it into the garage or onto the back porch and let it blow its warm air out there. This looks SO LOVELY. Indeed, lucky you!

Oh what a lucky gal you are with cherries and a dehydrator.

I used to have a dehydrator but it shot the bullet one day a couple years back.

I have never had a cherry harvest.


I love these kinds of combinations (in fact, I'm posting a similar dish next week), and they are great for potluck. Dried cherries and dried cranberries are great in green salad, too.


Yes, it is a gift! Your cherries are my favorite kind (dark)...

That couscous salad looks wonderful! With homemade dried cherries, it must taste gorgeous!

I have never thought of having couscous this way, Sher. What a wonderful recipe!


Sher, this looks like a brilliant combination. What a great way to use some of the cherries. (I have one of those dehydrators too, but haven't used it for ages!)


Fantastic dish. Thanks so much for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights...and if you want to send me a batch of dried cherries...


You always come up with the yummiest looking recipes and this is no exception. I'm going to have to give this one a try -- thanks :)


Sher--It looks divine and how cool that you dried your own cherries! It was a lot of work to pit them and put them all up but you're going to so enjoy having them!


I absolutely love dried cherries and am glad you could revitalize the ole dehydrator. Right now I don't have the space, but I find them quite attractive as well. I bet your Mom is looking down and smacking her lips!


I'm so jealous of all your cherries. Dwarf trees must be the answer. Our 2 trees are huge, and we never see a cherry - the birds get them all. (Except the sour cherries.... they're not stupid birds)
Our apple and pear do the same - nothing one year and crazy the next.
I love cherries and yogurt...
And the couscous looks lovely.


That looks really delicious. We love dried cherries in our house, and I am wishing I was one of your neighbors!


Oh, my goodness -- that's gorgeous! Tagging this right away. I won't be drying my own cherries, but I think I'll be forgiven for that. I'm a huge fan of pistachios.


Oh yes, this looks good. Couscous is good stuff.


That couscous looks really good! Drying your own cherries sounds like fun.


I'm catching up on your posts and I am very, VERY envious of your cherry harvest. Wow! And this is such a creative use for them. Looks delicious. (Although I can't believe that anything beats standing under the tree and eating them straight from the tree!)

Was googling to find a recipe to use some fresh Rainier cherries off of our tree as I wanted to serve them as salad with couscous. Your recipe hits the mark. Off to start it now. Thanks for sharing.


Your photos just resiad my serotonin. Art and color therapy! Love zaatar and haven't really tried it with anything other than pita and flatbread.
