This sweet-tart cherry, cilantro and walnut salad, chef Erez Komarovsky’s riff on a classic Turkish dish, is delicious on its own or as a relish for grilled meats or fish.
2 red Holland chiles
1 lb. fresh dark pitted cherries
1 cup cilantro leaves
1⁄2 cup walnut halves, toasted and roughly chopped
3 tbsp. olive oil
1 1⁄2 tbsp. pomegranate molasses
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
1. Heat oven broiler to high. Place chiles on a baking sheet; broil, turning as needed, until charred and tender. 4-5 minutes.
2. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap, let sit for 5 minutes. Discard stems, skin, and seeds from chiles; finely chop and transfer to a bowl. Add cherries, cilantro, walnuts, oil, molasses, juice, salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Serve chilled or at room temp.
