Make this quick and tasty fruit sauce all year long -- you can always find frozen strawberries and dried figs.
In a medium saucepan, bring figs, wine, and 1/2 cup water to a boil. Cover pan; remove from heat. Let stand until figs begin to soften, 5 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a blender, puree strawberries, sugar, and salt until smooth. Push through a fine-mesh sieve into fig mixture in saucepan.
Bring mixture to a boil, reduce to medium-low; simmer until sauce has thickened and figs are tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
To serve, divide cake among four serving plates; top with sauce.
To store sauce, cover and refrigerate up to 2 days.
