I served it on Ritz Crackers but any slightly sweet/salty cracker would work or even celery stalks would work.
1 small can pineapple tidbits or crushed pineapple.(reserve liquid)
1/2 lb. pitted cherries.
4 oz. softened cream cheese
1 small vanilla or pineapple yogurt .
toasted coconut (optional)
Place all ingredients in food processor or blender on chop and process for a few minutes. You want mixture to be thick so pulse several times enough to get cherries to break in small pieces. If needed add small amount of pineapple juice to thin. Place in bowl, top with toasted coconut and serve with crackers of your choice.
Note: Low fat cream cheese and low fat yogurt can be used to cut fat content.
A great summer appetizer.
