1/2 cup shelled dry-roasted pistachios, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
1 teaspoon black pepper

Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl; let stand 30 minutes. Drain well; discard chipotle chile. Combine cherries, pistachios, and next 6 ingredients (pistachios through jalapeño pepper). Stir in 1/4 teaspoon salt.
