Rhubarb is a vegetable, however, you mostly enjoy this veggie in sweet recipes like pies, jams, and most commonly paired with strawberries.
If you want to make a super quick spread for your charcuterie boards, you can combine your rhubarb with orange zest, softened butter, a little bit of sugar, and mix thoroughly. Pair it with some goat cheese and crackers and you\'re all set! Lastly, you can eat rhubarb raw and add to your summer salads for a little bit of crunch! However, if your rhubarb still has its leaves be sure not to eat those as they are toxic.

SAVORY STRAWBERRY RHUBARB & BALSAMIC SPREAD
This tart and tangy spread is a different and delicious way to use rhubarb!
1 small red onion (or 1/2 large red onion), diced
1 lb. rhubarb, ends trimmed and cut into 1/2" pieces
1" piece of ginger, grated or finely chopped
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp tamari, soy sauce, or coconut aminos
1 tbsp butter
1/2 lb. strawberries, cut approximately the same size as rhubarb
If using this recipe to make the grilled chevre sandwich below, also include4 oz chevre (plain or honey)
1-2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
In a medium stockpot or a dutch oven over medium heat, add enough olive oil to thinly cover the bottom of the pot. Add the red onion and a pinch of sea salt and saute for 7 minutes until soft and translucent.
Add rhubarb, ginger, maple syrup, balsamic, and tamari or soy sauce. Bring to a simmer for 10 minutes, or until the rhubarb is soft and starts to break down.
Turn off heat. Add butter and strawberries (reserving a few for topping if using sauce to make a meal) and stir in butter and strawberries. Enjoy warm off the stove, or at room temperature!
FreshFix Tip: This spread can be used in a wide variety of ways. Our favorite is to make a grilled cheese on sourdough using this spread, some chevre, and some chopped fresh rosemary! (This can also be done as an open-faced sandwich on a piece of toast.) Finally, this spread can be used as a topping to finish grilled meat or tofu!
