This recipe for Pineapple-Cashew Salad is a dessert, not a light meal. Soaking it in the wine actually ends up quite a strong alcohol taste, almost like one of those chocolate candies filled with rum. I don't usually like that in my desserts, but for the people who do, this is really a unique dessert that would be fabulous to serve at a dinner party.
1/2 cup sweet white wine, such as Riesling or ice wine
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 golden pineapple, peeled, cored and diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup roasted cashews
4 mint leaves, finely shredded
Pour the wine into a medium bowl and add the sugar, stirring until it is dissolved. Add the pineapple cubes. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
To serve, stir the cashews into the pineapple. Divide among serving bowls and sprinkle with the mint.
