Free-form Rhubarb Salad

As promised, here's one more rhubarb recipe for your pucker. A jello-salad that ain't meant to be molded, from my friend's mom's cousin's friend's aunt's granny's garden. Okay, maybe just my friend's mom's.
[don't fear the rhubarb salad - it's more afraid of you than you are of it]

Rhubarb Salad
3 c. rhubarb
1 c. water
1 c. sugar
Combine in sauce pan & cook till tender. Remove from heat and add 1 3-oz package of strawberry jello, plus 1- 8oz. can crushed pineapple. Stir until mixed, pour into bowl and refrigerate until cold.

Yum. Although I would NOT suggest using sugar-free jello like I did. WTF was I thinking? Rhubarb always needs a sweet balance. Learn from my mistake. I don't think saving the 30 calories is worth it when it comes to this dessert fit for any ladies' luncheon.

Alright. I have 3 cups of rhubarb left, so I am taking requests for the weekend. Post your favorite fam-friendly [or rude] rhubarb dish by Friday night, and I'll pick one to recreate, so I can see how it's done. Fun!

  1. Oh darn...wish I had my Grandma's recipe. As far as I can remember, it was rhubarb and sugar, sometimes she added strawberries. It was very tasty.
