Chef Rick Tip
This is a low fat, lower sodium dinner. Try using other tropical fruits like mango and papaya with macadamia nuts. Simply add one tablespoon vegetable oil to saucepan, add in nuts and toast for 3-4 minutes, peel and dice fresh mango and papaya, add to pan and heat. Drain and add in cherries and add liquid as needed. Enjoy!
