Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. Combine cherries and mustard in a bowl; set aside. Brush oil on onion slices and then season burgers and onions with salt and pepper. Grill all, flipping once, until onions are tender and burgers are cooked to your liking, about 10 minutes. Spread mustard on bottom buns; top with lettuce, onions, burgers and blue cheese. Top with buns and serve.
