I made this recipe as described, but made the following changes - fresh cherries aren't in season yet, so I thawed frozen cherries; used a cherry balsamic vinegar; and I had romano feta instead of smoked cheese.
I'm looking forward to adding fresh cherries, instead of frozen, since the crispness of fresh cherries will add more crunch. I will also add an extra stalk of celery, to add to the textures. The flavors are really wonderful, and I like the creaminess and slight tang of the feta.
My only negative is that there could be a little less oil; next time, I'm going to drop it down to 3 Tbsp. Oh, and that it's way too easy to eat the entire bowl, it's so tasty.
