Warm Apricot and Cherry Salad

The season for apricots is so short that this is a rare salad that can only be made perhaps three to four weeks out of the year at most.  I look forward to it every season because it is one of my favorites.  After apricots are out of season I switch to a peach salad.  But during apricot season I eat about a thousand of them. I had the most wonderful day shooting with my friend Jaime Zehner of JZ Interior Designs.  We were able to work in one of the kitchens she designed and she brought all of these great bowls and props along.  In addition to being a great designer she is also terrific at photography and instagram videos and once I figure out how to put the reels or videos on here I will gladly share them.  In the meantime my instagram is @maili_halme and I saved some of the videos to my highlight under salad. WARM APRICOT AND CHERRY SALAD Serves 4 4 apricots, halved and pitted 12 cherries, halved and pitted 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil, to sauté fruit 2 tablespoons sugar, or more
