With the first burst of rhubarb, my go to recipe is always a sweet-tart strawberry rhubarb crisp. It’s a family favorite and our celebration of warmer temperatures and more treats to come.
This week our Share of rhubarb comes without strawberries. No worries, there are innumerable ways to enjoy this tart veggie including the recipes below. Or, if you want to save your rhubarb for an extended period read the Rhubarb Central blog for tips on storing to keep it fresh and crisp.Extra bonus? Rhubarb Central has loads of additional rhubarb recipes to try!

All too often Rhubarb ends up on the dessert table, especially when delivered with fresh strawberries! Not at Facebook group member Michelle Pasquaretta’s house this past week. She shared her lovely photos and recipe for a zesty Rhubarb Salsa, a little something different, in case you’ve had too much crisp!
