  • 2 cups 1/2-inch pieces fresh rhubarb
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 cups mixed baby greens
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese or feta
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted (see Tip)
  • 1/4 cup golden raisins

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Toss rhubarb with sugar in a medium bowl until well coated; let stand, stirring once or twice, for about 10 minutes. Spread in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until just beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, oil, shallot, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add greens; toss to coat with the dressing. Divide the greens among 4 plates. Top with the rhubarb, goat cheese (or feta), walnuts and raisins.
  • Tip: To toast chopped nuts, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Easy cleanup: To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you bake.

Tart and flavor-packed salad My husband wasn't wild about the thought of this salad, but he likes rhubarb and was quite pleasantly surprised and satisfied! I used red leaf lettuce; I let the vinegar, shallot and s/p marinate while the rhubarb absorbed the sugar and roasted; I used goat cheese and subbed dried cherries for the raisins, since that's what I had on hand. Very good; nice light summer dinner.
