Easy, rhubarby -- what's not to like? Brings fruit salad up a notch with a great rhubarb flavor. Takes almost no extra time over regular fruit salad, and the rhubarb sauce adds a pleasant tartness that really went well at brunch.

Nice light dessert It was very good! Not knock your socks off good (hence 4 stars instead of 5) but definitely something I will make again...maybe a double batch so I have plenty of leftovers! Pros: Easy
