This is a great recipe for whatever fresh fruit you may have on hand and a good cheap white wine. It's cool and refreshing and just complicated-looking enough to leave your guests wowed!

I've only made this recipe twice. The first time it came out delicious - using frozen strawberries helped make the wine sauce a little sweeter and fruitier. As a caution - the second time I overcooked the wine and it turned caramel color and HORRIBLY salty! Wine is one of those things that requires precision. Read More

I don't necessarily agree with the recipe author that there's anything complicated looking about this or that this will "wow" your guests. It basically looks like fresh fruit cocktail but the wine-sugar-mint combo is a nice twist for a fruit salad. I added some fresh raspberries and they didn't hold up well in the wine marinade turned mushy. Served with a small slice of angel food cake this was a nice light finish to a Sunday meal. We enjoyed it and will make again. Read More
