    This was wonderful! I've made it a couple of times now. We've used it for to top chips, put on grilled chicken and used it in halibut tacos. I once made it with lemon juice because I didn't have enough lime and it turned out just as wonderful. I also add cilantro. I would make it a day ahead and let it sit in the fridge so all the flavors can meld together. You should definitely try this!! I had friends come over that immediately asked for the recipe. Thanks!  -  24 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Awesome! This is a great way to use rhubarb without a lot of sugar. The lime and the apples make this delicious. I didn't have green onions so I used red onion and chives. I added a little Kosher salt. I'm guessing that if you thaw frozen rhubarb there would be no need to blanch it. I ate it with chips, but you could do a lot with this.  -  14 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for my friends to go with grilled chicken and we all loved it! I would definately recommend this to someone who wants to use rhubarb in their cooking more!  -  21 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
