Oh wow, you have rhubarb already? Delicious! Ours is about 6" to 12" up, including leaf, so not anywhere close. We grow lots, 5 different kinds, use a lot and sell extra and give away also. I've never thought of adding to a salad though I just like a stalk raw with a little sugar to dip it in now and then.
Athanasia, I am just totally jealous! Ever since we moved here, in 1994, I've had a real challenge growing rhubarb. I have one good plant, and the other one is nearly dead. I have No Idea what is wrong. At our other place it grew enthusiastically! But you have inspired me. I need to try some other varieties. My mom used to let me eat rhubarb with sugar that way too. :)
No, I've never tried it raw. Thanks for the tip!
