Rhubarb & Strawberry Tart is a light summer dessert that is truly divine, yet easy to make. It is also full of nutrients and guilt free.
Last week I was strawberry picking with my daughter and grandsons at one of ours favorite local farms, the Downey’s . We have been going there since the boys started walking, for strawberry, raspberry & apple picking. Also getting the best pumpkin you can find and having fun at their farm playground.
Obviously that is what our boys love the most, besides eating the fruits straight from the plant. I must admit, it was my favorite part as well, because these strawberries tasted heavenly and I wish I ate more. Sadly they were not the same by the time we got home. Therefore, I decided to make this delicious Rhubarb & Strawberry Tart.
Well the next day and sliced them and freeze them making sure they would not go bad before I get all the ingredients for the tart. Obviously I had to get Rhubarb and if you are not familiar with this wonderful plant, you may read about it HERE.
Supermarkets usually sell five stalks in a bundle, but you need two bundles because the stalks are not straight. You will basically end up with 8 stalks after cutting some parts off. However, you can also freeze them and make jam later whether with strawberies or just plain rhubarb. It is almost the same process as the strawberry layer for this tart, except you will make it with rhubarb. Just cut it on very small pieces and cook little bit longer.
Also, regarding the crust, which is super easy to make by the way, I have couple more tart recipes. These are super delicious and you may like them as well SUPERFOOD EASTER TARTS and WHITE CHOCOLATE TART.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you try this delicious recipe. It is truly easy to make, especially after you watch my video. I wish you a wonderful week and do not forget to subscribe.
