This is one of my favorite ways to serve strawberries in the summer. Great light make ahead dessert for a cookout for family or guests. Don't let the cook time fool you - that includes the hour and a half chill time.

Directions

  1. Remove zest from 1 orange and cut into thin strips.
  2. Bring 2 cups water to boil in small saucepan.
  3. Add peel and return to boil.
  4. Drain.
  5. Repeat process two more times.
  6. Refrigerate.
  7. Squeeze enough juice from oranges to equal 1/2 cup.
  8. Bring juice, white zinfandel and sugar to a simmer in a small saucepan.
  9. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the sugar dissolves.
  10. Transfer to sauce to a bowl and stir in berries.
  11. Chill for 1 1/2 hours.
  12. Divide the ice cream between 4 bowls.
  13. Top with strawberries& sauce.
  14. Garnish with the cooked peel.

Loved, loved, loved this! The oranges and strawberries made such a nice combination. A nice way to end a romantic dinner. I served over nonfat frozen yogurt but am thinking it would be great over some pound cake as well. Delicious! Thanks for sharing.
