Cherries are in full season here – red, pink, white, dark red, all sorts of colors are available. My favorites are the Amarena cherries, dark and slightly bitter, with plenty of flesh and juice, the kind of cherries that stain your fingertips and clothes… stains that bring many childhood memories back, the kind of stains that I don’t mind anymore. I loved climbing trees to pick these up when I was a kid and the taste of freshly made cherry jam is something that I will never forget.
This vegan tzatziki sauce is a fantastic light and creamy dip made with tofu. It’s a great sauce for BBQ and picnics, and it’s a delicious snack with a pita bread or falafel or just on a slice of toast. You can also dip veggies and chips in this yummy sauce….or just eat it right out of the bowl with a spoon!
