Mixed Greens Salad w/ Roasted Rhubarb, Strawberries, Goat Cheese & Pistachios
i usually think of rhubarb as a dessert.
i decided to approach my second 'rhubarb care package' in a healthier fashion, a salad.
a salad studded with strawberries, goat cheese & pistachios, because everyone knows a salad isn't a salad unless you have an ample supply of cheese and nuts.
this is most certainly rhubarb reimagined, at least for me.
dinner = salad
cobbler = dessert
