I love to use Rhubarb each year by making a rhubarb sauce to serve on top of ice cream, but I was also trying to think of another good use for it that wasn’t dessert. I had the brilliant idea to try it in a salad dressing, and it is one of the best salads I have ever made! If you are a fan of dressings like strawberry vinaigrette, raspberry vinaigrette, or honey mustard, you will adore this one.

Following the recipe for the dressing, I have the recipe for the salad itself – Enjoy!
