Comments

We just tried this recipe using some rhubarb that they had available through the food bank.  We added about 1/4 cup of diced rhubarb and a tablespoon of honey.  It was SOOO good.  If you add the rhubarb I would change the cilantro to mint.  YUM.  This was the first time that rhubarb has been widely available at the food bank so we were excited to experiment.  It would also be great on the Fruit Pizza recipe and the Any Berry Sauce.  

I made strawberry salsa for an after school garden club wanting to offer participatns a tasting opportunity that included foods represented in their garden, but not yet ready to harvest. We used lettuce leaves as "wraps" and put grated beets and carrots as well as sliced radishes inside. Strawberry salsa went inside as well.  It was super colorful and the kids (and adults) loved it!
