Tart Cherry Salsa

Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place tomato slices, onion and red bell pepper in a single layer on baking sheet. Broil until starting to get brown and charred, 5-7 minutes.

Remove from oven and add to a food processor (or blender) and blend until smooth. Add into the food processor the cilantro, jalapeno, garlic, lime juice, cumin, salt and pepper. Again, blend until smooth.

Slice most of the Montmorency tart cherries in half, leaving about a 1/4-cup of them whole. Scoop Montmorency tart cherries into a bowl.

Pour tomato salsa mixture into the same bowl. Stir everything together.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or overnight) to let the flavors blend together.

Serve warm or cold.
