Rhubarb Cole Slaw


I was recently at a press lunch with Scan - the biggest meat producer in Sweden who presented their barbecue line-up for the summer. We got to taste most of them, along with a lot of salads and sauces. My absolute favorite was a rhubarb cole slaw. I e-mailed Scan to get the recipe and promptly made it at home. This isn't exactly it - the original had celery if I recall correctly - but it's close. And it's lovely. I will add even more rhubarb next time though - it's sour crunch goes so extremely well with the creamy slaw. Truly perfect with anything on the barbecue - a hunk of beef, some chicken, sausages...

Finely shred the cabbage. Slice the rhubarb and the scallions thinly. Mix in a large bowl. Stir together all the ingredients for the dressing and fold into the salad.

This is one of the most unique recipes I've ever seen for rhubarb. I can't wait to try it when we get more rhubarb around here near Seattle.
