Let's be honest, cooking in the heat of the summer is sometimes the last thing we want to do. But we still want to eat fresh, replenishing foods. Sliced strawberries, crisp radishes, and rhubarb atop a bed of freshly mixed greens is a healthy, seasonal treat for your body and taste buds.
And did you know rhubarb is actually a vegetable? Rich in Vitamin K, rhubarb aids in brain development, bone health, and digestion. Strawberries are good throughout much of the year, but rhubarb must be taken advantage of during the spring and summer months. Even though we've spilled into August there is still time to take advantage of its deliciously sweet bitterness.
