  1. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add prosciutto and cook, turning once or twice, until crispy, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Break each slice into 3 "crisps."
  2. Place the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, ½ cup cherries, vinegar, shallot, tarragon, sugar and salt in a blender; puree until smooth.
