Honey roasted rhubarb salad recipe

When you hear “rhubarb,” you likely think “pie.” That’s because this tart vegetable pairs well with a bit of sweet.

Despite being part of a favorite spring and summertime dessert, rhubarb is surprisingly nutritious. It’s a good source of fiber and vitamins C and K.

Look for firm, crisp stalks and fresh leaves. The stalk is the only edible part. Don’t eat the leaves; trim them off and toss them in your compost bin.

“In this recipe, rhubarb’s tart flavor is balanced with honey — a healthier sweetener. Raw honey contains beneficial bacteria, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, and supports immunity,” says  Alyssa Debord, a Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Dietitian and Coordinator for Kaiser Permanente.
