Use only tender, thin stalks of rhubarb for this salsa. It pairs well with grilled chicken or pork.


1 cup diced rhubarb stems

¾ cup diced English or Lemon Globe cucumbers

½ cup diced yellow bell pepper

½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 teaspoon honey

½ teaspoon salt

Fresh ground pepper

1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil

Juice from half a lime


Place the rhubarb, cucumber, bell pepper and cilantro in a medium-sized bowl. Mix thoroughly with a spoon. In a separate bowl, whisk the honey, salt, pepper, oil and lime juice. Add this to the vegetable mixture. Stir to coat. Adjust seasoning with more salt, pepper and honey, if desired.
