Fresh, delicious dessert option

You may not expect balsamic vinegar to pair so well with cherries, but it is a delicious combination. The tangy flavor from the balsamic vinegar really brings out the sweetness of the cherries.

Serves 3 (6-ounce mason jar parfaits)


  • 1 pound fresh organic cherries, pitted and halved

  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • ½ cup toasted walnuts

  • 1 cup plain lowfat yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon honey


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Marinate the cherries in balsamic vinegar while the oven is preheating. Spread the cherries on a baking sheet and bake them for 20 minutes. Mix the yogurt and honey together, stirring with a spoon. Evenly layer all ingredients into three 6-ounce mason jars for a nutritious breakfast or snack.
