Summer Cherries Jubilee

A cherry pitter will save you preparation time and prevent a red-stained thumb. If you don't want to use the wine, cranberry juice produces a beautiful color and a delicious, albeit different, result.


4 servings (serving size: about 1/3 cup cherry sauce and 1/2 cup yogurt)
