Refreshing Rhubarb Salad Recipe

Refreshing Rhubarb Salad Recipe

Nearly everyone I know has rhubarb in their garden, so it is indeed plentiful each spring. I've had this recipe in my scrapbook for years and serve it often at potlucks.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:12-14 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 package (6 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • Mayonnaise, fresh mint and additional strawberries, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the rhubarb, water and sugar to a boil. Cook, uncovered, until rhubarb is tender, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Stir in the orange juice and peel.
  • 2. Chill until mixture begins to thicken. Fold in strawberries. Pour into a 2-qt. bowl; chill until set. If desired, garnish with a dollop of mayonnaise, mint and strawberries. Yield: 12-14 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

"Easy to make, refreshing tart. We served with cook whip instead of may to bring out the sweetness."
