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.

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.
