How to Make Strawberry Rhubarb Salad 🍓


Rhubarb has been an important ingredient in Denmark since the 1800's. Summer memories including gardens with rhubab growing in Danish garden's such as my Mormor's garden. As well, rhubarb recipes such as rabarbergrød.

Here is modern rhubarb recipe that I had in Bakken a couple summers ago.  One of the restaurants had a salad buffet with a rhubarb salad.  So simple and delicious.  I had never tried a rhubarb salad before.  This had a nice sweet citrus flavor. The rhubarb becomes softened slightly while soaking in the citrus juices. I have had this recipe on my mind since being a Bakken. Here I added sliced strawberries and mint to this salad recipe which compliments rhubarb very well too.
