Oven-roasted nectarines and strawberries
This easy-to-assemble fruit dessert would also be delicious with scoops of passion fruit or mango sorbet instead of the lemon sorbet, or simply use your favorite flavor. Roast the strawberries and nectarines in the oven until they're nicely softened and caramelized, which are a delightful flavor contrast to cold sorbet and fresh mint. It all comes together in just about half and hour and is one impressive-looking yet healthy way to end a dinner party or simple meal at home.
