4 servings, about 2 cups each


  • 2 cups 1/2-inch pieces fresh rhubarb

  • 2 tablespoons sugar

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ 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)

  • ¼ cup golden raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
