This popular dish has been a staple on our dinner menu since it appeared on the cover of Wine Spectator in 2009. The rich favors in this dish go perfectly with the MacRostie 2008 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay, a balanced wine with lively notes of fresh citrus, ripe apple, tropical fruit and layers of spice and integrated French oak.

Spring is here and summer is fast approaching! This delightful fruit salad is perfect for a warm summer day with a refreshing glass of our Korbel Sec.

Ingredients:
  • 2 pints fresh strawberries, cut in half
  • 2 oz dried blueberries
  • 1 cup Korbel Sec
  • 2 oranges, zested and juiced
  • 2 T chopped fresh mint
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese or plain Greek yogurt (optional)
Method:
Place the blueberries in a small saucepan and add the Korbel Sec. Bring to a boil and then turn off. Let the berries soak up the champagne until cool. Drain the berries and set aside.

Place the strawberries and blueberries in a bowl. Add the orange zest, juice and the fresh mint. Toss gently and chill until ready to serve.

Top with Greek yogurt or mascarpone cheese if desired.

Serves 4
