  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the rhubarb, sugar, and 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 15 minutes, or until rhubarb is mushy. Mix well to form a sauce. Taste, and adjust sugar if needed. Reserve 1 cup. Save any extra for other uses.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the raspberry flavored gelatin and 1 cup of the boiling hot rhubarb mixture until completely dissolved. Stir in 1 cup cold water, then mix in the apples and walnuts. Pour into a serving bowl, and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours, or until set. Garnish with whipped topping or creamy salad dressing before serving if you like.

This tastes very good & refreshing. I used strawberry instead of raspberry because that's what I had. Even if you aren't crazy about rhubarb you will probably like this.

This is my favorite jello salad of all time. Even people who don't like rhubarb like this.

I thought this was very good! It was easy to make too. I peeled the apples and sliced them very thinly. It would be a pretty side dish for a holiday dinner. And I will double the recipe next time because it's that good!

I used Strawberry instead of raspberry. Turned out awesome. I keep trying to get a picture up of this dessert (why wouldn't they put one up?), but it never lasts long enough to take one! I will have to take a picture when it's in the fridge next time.

WOW! This salad is fantastic! An interesting combination of sweet/ tart & a delicious way to cool down during the summer heat. I used strawberry jello & pecans (what I had on hand), (though strawberry/rhubarb is one of my favorite combinations). Excellent use for the rhubarb surplus. Thanks CYNSABL for sharing a great recipe!

I have a patch of Rhubarb growing by the barn and needed to find easy recipes to use it up. I'm not familiar with rhubarb but it's beginning to become a favorite. This recipe keeps that slight tart taste but is still sweet enough to make you want to dive in. It was simple to make. I used strawberry jello, delicious. I'm going to use the little bit of left over sauce to top some ice cream. Great recipe!

A wonderful way to use rhubarb. I am diabetic so I used a sugar substitute and sugar-free gelatin. It was delicious!

LOVED IT!!! I made this for mothers day dinner and everyone who ate it liked it. I will definitely make this again and again. I used sugar free jello, so I let my daughter eat the rest of it for breakfast! It has lots of fruit and nuts in it so why not! It's better than powdered donuts!
