Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp is one of the first things I make every year with produce from our garden. Rhubarb is hardy enough to make an early appearance before almost everything else around here. And since our local strawberries come in later around the end of June, I like to use frozen strawberries to make this recipe even easier.

Sweet juicy grapes, crunchy celery, toasted almond all combine together with the chicken and savory dressing to make the best chicken salad ever! I already have an Avocado Chicken Salad recipe on the blog which is super tasty. However the avocado doesn’t keep as well, and so we definitely need the classic recipe here too.

Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce

This Strawberry Rhubarb Sauce is simple to make, and there’s no refined sugar! Instead you can use either maple syrup or honey which both make for an incredible flavor pairing with this dynamite duo. The sweetness of the strawberries tempers the tangy nature of rhubarb so you don’t need quite as much sweetener either. This sauce keeps well for days in the fridge, and it’s perfect over my Homemade Coconut Ice Cream. Or try it with your favorite creamy yogurt topped with my Maple Cinnamon Granola.

Have you ever eaten raw rhubarb? Well… I wouldn’t recommend taking a very big bite that’s for sure! My Grandpa used to think it was so funny to initiate each of his grandkids into rhubarb by feeding it to us raw. It’s incredibly sour, and he would be laughing so hard at our puckered up faces that he’d pretty much fall to his knees with mirth!
