Best Rosy Rhubarb Salad Recipe
During the holidays, I'll at times serve this unusual salad in place of cranberry sauce. It goes well with pork or poultry . Honestly, though, it's good with any everyday meal, too. It's just a little tart, so it rounds out rich food. I've been cooking ever since I made corn bread to surprise my family when I was 9. My brothers wouldn't eat it—but my parents did! My husband and I are dairy farmers in partnership with our grown son.
