Rhubarb Salad

In my childhood was the best dessert and treat rhubarb with sugar. Just so simple: we dipped rhubarb stalks in to the sugar.Β  Sour! Sour.. sour!!! πŸ™‚

Dianna Donnely from https://realfoodmeals.com/2017/03/18/crunchy-cabbage-salad-with-sliced-almonds/ introduced delicious salad. I saw photos and was sure, that there are rhubarb .. But it was celery:)

So, I promised to Dianna that I will test similar recipe with rhubarb. (And replaced other ingredients the local)

Rhubarb is strange vegetable. The plant do not need (too) much care, so in all gardens are small place for rhubarb, which means that in May, June all Estonia has a flood of rhubarb. And we are looking for recipes.. ..what else to do. So, thank you Dianna for inspiration!

From rhubarb leaves we are cooking soup. And with others.. baking lot of cakes. And rhubarb leftovers freezing for winter..
When you are looking for Estonian cake recipes, there are always written “apple or rhubarb”. This is means that the same cake you can bake in spring with rhubarb and in autumn with apples.

Because rhubarb contains oxalic acid, it need aside or with him some calcium. Cake recipes contains usually quark, but this salad I suggest to serve with grilled cheese (for example)

For soundrack I added Estonia 2017 Eurovision song by Laura and Koit “Verona”. Vote for Estonia !:)
