Tangy Rhubarb Salsa

Recipe by  

"This is a recipe I came up with while trying to figure out what to do with an over-abundance of rhubarb. I'm not fond of sugary, syrupy rhubarb sauces but I love rhubarb and I love salsa, so I figured why not put them together! Just grab a bag of tortilla chips, or better yet make your own, and enjoy! Feel free to adjust ingredients to your liking. Don't like jalapenos? Don't use them. Mix and match peppers however you like, just be sure to use 3 of them. Also, I prefer Nellie and Joe's® lime juice because it's a bit more tart than regular bottled or fresh-squeezed lime juice, but if you can't find it that's fine, just use what you have."

A great way to use rhubarb without having to add cups of sugar. A tasty salsa; only change I made was to use regular bottled lime juice. My rough chop of the bell peppers was too rough; I had to pulse the food processor too many times and the salsa was not as 'chunky' as in the picture. Makes a lot of salsa; will half the recipe next time. Easy to add more heat; just add more jalapeno or leave the seeds in. It was a hit at my wife's work; many requests for the recipe.

Great! I made Peking duck and made the salsa and ate duck tacos for a Saturday night. It is delicious.

This stuff is great - and addicting! The only change I made to the recipe is to use a clove of garlic instead of garlic powder. I put the garlic, salt and pepper into the lime juice mixture before pouring it over the salsa. This is a recipe that you can easily adjust to personal tastes regarding types of peppers and amount of heat. It is wonderful with chips, but also great as an accompaniment to any grilled meat - pork, burgers, or chicken. Everyone I have served this to raves about it and asks for the recipe. Thanks for such a great recipe!

This is so delicious! I minced it all by hand (didn't read the directions until I was done) and it was perfect. At first taste I knew this was dinner. Just this and tortilla chips. It is so good. I added black beans to some of it and it was very good. As another reviewer said, it is nice to have a rhubarb recipe that doesn't involve cups of suger. Very good - thank you!
