- 2 ripe plums (about 8 ounces), pitted and cut into wedges
- 3/4 cup chilled sparkling rosso dolce or medium-bodied red wine
- 1 tablespoon packed fresh tarragon leaves
- Freshly ground pepper
Give fruit a lift with wine. A sparkling one, such as rosso dolce (a slightly sweet, fruity red from Italy), works well. You can substitute sliced fresh figs, melon, peaches, or grapes for plums.
Place plums in a shallow bowl. Top with wine and tarragon; season with pepper.
