Adult Fruit Salad

I was separated from my CSA for a week while enjoying a trip to the beach with family and friends. After several days of consuming delicious but not exactly light food, I threw this together when an unexpected guest of honor showed up.

30 black cherries, pitted and sliced in half
3/4 pound strawberries, stemmed and sliced lengthwise in 1/2" pieces
1/2 pint blueberries
1 tbsp sugar
3/4 cup red wine (I used Pinot Noir because an open bottle was sitting on the counter but this would probably be even better with Syrah or Malbec)
juice of 2 clementines (again, sitting on the counter)

Combine all ingredients and toss to coat evenly. Let sit for 15 minutes and serve.

Leftover juices from this salad are a delicious starter for a single serving of berry sangria:

2/3 cup juice from fruit salad
1/2 cup seltzer
1/2 oz. triple sec
squeeze of orange

Pour ingredients into an ice-filled wine glass, mix, and serve.
