I served it with 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.
