Rhubarb makes a great addition to a springtime salsa that's so nice with chicken, fish, on a taco, or just scooped up in a tortilla chip.

This was wonderful! I've made it a couple of times now. We've used it for to top chips put on grilled chicken and used it in halibut tacos. I once made it with lemon juice because I didn't have enough lime and it turned out just as wonderful. I also add cilantro. I would make it a day ahead and let it sit in the fridge so all the flavors can meld together. You should definitely try this!! I had friends come over that immediately asked for the recipe. Thanks!

Awesome! This is a great way to use rhubarb without a lot of sugar. The lime and the apples make this delicious. I didn't have green onions so I used red onion and chives. I added a little Kosher salt. I'm guessing that if you thaw frozen rhubarb there would be no need to blanch it. I ate it with chips but you could do a lot with this. Read More

My dear friend Shawna has a huge garden and gave me the most lovely rhubarb. It was so fresh and it's flavor quite strong so I used the 2 cups of rhubarb then doubled everything else. Took another's suggestion and added fresh strawberries too. Fabulous! The next night I added some avocado to make it more of a guacamole! Great! Read More

This recipe was fantastic. I caught my 15 year old daughter "sampling" it from the fridge while I grilling the chicken to put it on. I stuck to the recipe except for one addition. I added a couple sprigs of chopped cilantro and I think that added the perfect finishing touch. One mistake I made was in blanching the rhubarb too long. I lost more flavor than I intended. I also would add a second jalapeno next time. I added one per the recipe and couldn't get a lot from it... and that's something for me to say since I'm a wuss when things are too hot. Read More

The salsa is delicious and interesting. I always was looking for the no dessert rhubarb recipes and that is. I used the salsa on potatoes but we found it would be better with bread or tortilla chips. I didn t have honey and used brown sugar instead that worked well. And I had big limes so 1 lime was enough too. Thanks for a great rhubarb recipe. Read More
