Strawberry-Rhubarb Salad with Mint and Hazelnuts

Strawberries and rhubarb are a power duo in pie; here, raw rhubarb plays a tart counter to sweet strawberries. Fresh mint adds the perfect balance

-- Yield: 8 servings

-- Active Time: 15 min.

-- Total Time: 45 min.

Ingredients

-- 1/2 cup blanched hazelnuts

-- 2 rhubarb stalks, thinly sliced on the diagonal

-- 2 tablespoons sugar

-- 1 tablespoon Cointreau or fresh orange juice

-- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

-- 2 pounds strawberries, hulled, quartered

-- 1/4 cup torn fresh mint leaves

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Toast hazelnuts on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing occasionally, until golden brown, 8–10 minutes. Let cool, then chop.
  2. Meanwhile, toss rhubarb, sugar, Cointreau, and lemon juice in a medium bowl. Let sit until rhubarb is slightly softened and releases its juices, about 30 minutes. Toss with strawberries, mint, and hazelnuts.
 
Cooks' note: Resist the urge to make the salad the night before, or the rhubarb may become too soft.
