About this recipe:This is a recipe I came up with while trying to figure out what to do with an over-abundance of rhubarb. I'm not fond of sugary, syrupy rhubarb sauces but I love rhubarb and I love salsa, so I figured why not put them together! Feel free to adjust ingredients to your liking.
250g thinly sliced rhubarb
1 small red onion, coarsely chopped
1 large green pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 large red pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 large yellow pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
1 jalapeno chilli pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped - or to taste
25g freshly chopped coriander
3 ripe plum tomatoes, finely diced
2 teaspoons brown sugar
5 tablespoons lime juice
2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 pinch garlic powder, or to taste

Stir rhubarb into a large pot of boiling water and cook for 10 seconds. Quickly drain rhubarb and rinse with cold water until cool; transfer rhubarb to a large bowl.
Place red onion, green, red, and yellow peppers, jalapeno pepper and coriander into a food processor and pulse 3 or 4 times to finely chop; transfer pepper mixture to bowl with rhubarb. Stir in tomatoes.
Dissolve brown sugar in lime juice in a bowl; lightly stir lime juice mixture into rhubarb mixture. Sprinkle salsa with salt, garlic powder and black pepper and stir salsa again. Chill for at least 3 hours to blend flavours.
