This is a great way to use left over rhubarb sauce. Your kids may not even know rhubarb is a key ingredient. Excellent salad with poultry. Another serving suggestion: Make in 9x13 cut in squares and serve topped with your favorite chicken salad.

This tastes very good & refreshing. I used strawberry instead of raspberry because that's what I had. Even if you aren't crazy about rhubarb you will probably like this. Read More

I thought this was very good! It was easy to make too. I peeled the apples and sliced them very thinly. It would be a pretty side dish for a holiday dinner. And I will double the recipe next time because it's that good! Read More

I used Strawberry instead of raspberry. Turned out awesome. I keep trying to get a picture up of this dessert (why wouldn't they put one up?) but it never lasts long enough to take one! I will have to take a picture when it's in the fridge next time. Read More

I have a patch of Rhubarb growing by the barn and needed to find easy recipes to use it up. I'm not familiar with rhubarb but it's beginning to become a favorite. This recipe keeps that slight tart taste but is still sweet enough to make you want to dive in. It was simple to make. I used strawberry jello delicious. I'm going to use the little bit of left over sauce to top some ice cream. Great recipe! Read More

WOW! This salad is fantastic! An interesting combination of sweet/ tart & a delicious way to cool down during the summer heat. I used strawberry jello & pecans (what I had on hand) (though strawberry/rhubarb is one of my favorite combinations). Excellent use for the rhubarb surplus. Thanks CYNSABL for sharing a great recipe!

A wonderful way to use rhubarb. I am diabetic so I used a sugar substitute and sugar-free gelatin. It was delicious! Read More

LOVED IT!!! I made this for mothers day dinner and everyone who ate it liked it. I will definitely make this again and again. I used sugar free jello so I let my daughter eat the rest of it for breakfast! It has lots of fruit and nuts in it so why not! It's better than powdered donuts! Read More
