Spring Greens Salad with Roasted Rhubarb, Goat Cheese, and Pecans

I’m always on the hunt for innovative rhubarb recipes, especially ones without a ton of sugar. I found this gorgeous salad on after the (farmer’s) market and had to try it with my own spin. I’m very glad I did because roasted rhubarb is brilliant. The roasting mellowed the tartness of the rhubarb, which was complemented by the creamy goat cheese and the honey added a light sweetness. I would definitely make this again and again with my generous rhubarb harvest and other local farmers’ market finds, such as greens, honey, and goat cheese.

  • 3 stalks rhubarb, cut into 2″ pieces
  • 1 heaping teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 cup pecans
  • 4 cups spring salad greens
  • Ginger vinaigrette (Whisk together 1 Tbsp ginger infused vinegar, 1 tsp salt, 2 Tbsp Olive Oil)
  • 2 oz. goat cheese, crumbled

Preheat the oven to 350F. Mix the rhubarb and honey on a baking sheet and roast for about 10 minutes until softened. On a separate baking sheet, roast the pecans for about 10 minutes until lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Toss the salad greens with the ginger vinaigrette. Top with the rhubarb, goat cheese, and pecans.
